|Official Title:||Measuring Patient Expectations for Thyroid Surgery: Development of a Patient-Reported Outcomes Instrument|
|Study Start Date :||July 2011|

|Estimated Study Completion Date :||July 2019|
We aim to interview 15 patients with confirmed thyroid malignancy both pre- and postoperatively, for a total of 30 interviews. For the expansion of this study, we will accrue 25 patients with biopsy-proven thyroid cancer undergoing thyroidectomy to be educated with the CITSAV application prior to surgery.
Behavioral: patient interviews
The pre-operative interview will be within 4 weeks of planned surgery and the postoperative interview within 8 weeks of surgery completion. This initial study is designed to develop an instrument to measure patient preoperative expectations in this patient population.
Behavioral: CITSAV survey
Individual semi-structured qualitative interviews will be conducted with a total of 10 patients and 5 clinicians during this phase to identify and discuss levels of satisfaction, level of burden, potential obstacles to implementation, as well as suggestions for improving the intervention
- To establish a patient-reported outcomes tool for measuring preoperative expectations in patients undergoing surgery for thyroid cancer. [ Time Frame: 2 year ]This will be done by conducting qualitative semistructured interviews with 15 thyroid cancer patients (pre- and postoperatively) to identify recurring themes about their expectations regarding thyroid surgery.
