Abstract: Background: Mail-out survey studies are becoming more prevalent in the head and neck literature. The objective of this paper is to summarize response rates in head and neck cancer patients, as well as to provide recommendations surrounding methodology used to design and implement mail-out survey questionnaires. Methods: The results of this paper are from a study assessing the measurement properties of the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand Questionnaire (DASH) in head and neck cancer patients. A modified Dillman tailored design approach was used. Results: The methods used yielded a response rate of 80% with this patient population. Conclusion: This is a considerably higher response rate than other reports in the oncology literature.
