Thyroid guidelines/policies, citation lists, monitoring and thyroid statistics

Belinda Hodson made this Official Information request to Ministry of Health

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Belinda Hodson to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Belinda Hodson

Dear Ministry of Health,

As at 31st March, please provide:

1. Guidelines and/or policy on thyroid diagnosis, testing and treatment issued/used/supported by the Ministry of Health; plus

a) The citation list (clinical research studies, other clinical papers and publications including randomised control trials and guidelines) that support these guidelines/policy. Citations are to include those on safety, benefits, efficacy, risk, and risk management; and

b). The citation list of all patient survey data that supports these guidelines/policy.

2. From the period 1 January 1990 through to 31 March 2019, all studies carried out by the Ministry of Health, referred to or sourced by the Ministry of Health (NZ or international studies) that:

a) Monitor the impact of https://bpac.org.nz/ and https://www.racp.edu.au/ guidelines/policies on thyroid diagnosis, testing and treatment on the health and well-being of NZ thyroid patients; and

b) All studies examining thyroid patients’ experience of diagnosis and treatment.

3. The Ministry of Health’s rationale to exclude statistics on thyroid disease from its website at: https://www.health.govt.nz/nz-health-sta.... NZ’s population of thyroid patients has been steadily rising since 2010 and the number of patients on funded medications was 109,252 as at 31 March 2017 as recorded by the Ministry of Health. This is before >10,000 patients are added to this total (data captured from another source). Or, if data and statistics are on the website, please advise where on the Ministry’s website this data can be viewed.

Yours faithfully,

Belinda Hodson
