1. Thyroid Cancer Survivors

Dear Thyroid Cancer Survivor:

This survey is to obtain information regarding radioiodine (I-131) treatments.

This survey should take 10-15 minutes and your participation and responses are completely anonymous. The results of the survey will be made available to you at the end of the survey.
 
You may have participated in a similar survey previously. The objective of this survey study is to evaluate whether there has been a change in medical practice on the release of patients treated with I-131 after the 2011 Nuclear Radiation Commission (NRC) Regulatory Issue Summary publication that strongly discouraged patients from residing in locations other than a private residence. 

If you are a guardian of a minor or another individual who received an I-131 treatment, please complete this survey for that minor or other individual for whom you are the guardian.

In advance, thank you for your participation.

Yours truly,

The ThyCa Survey Committee
