 With the following survey, the ESTS Robotic Working group would like to assess the Robotic practice of our membership as well as the current status of training in robotic procedures within the Society.
We would like to ask our members to define one surgeon per team to fill out the survey representing the respective institution.
Thank you very much in advance
 The ESTS Robotic Working Group

If during the last three seasons you subscribed for at least one of our educational webinars please complete this questionnaire.  We continuously strive to improve educational initiatives and  therefore the ESTS Committee for Learning Affairs would like to know your opinion on how we can improve our educational webinars. 
Please take a moment to complete this questionnaire in order to give you a better future webinar experience.

All questions in this survey relate exclusively to your opinions, beliefs, and practices in the management of primary spontaneous pneumothorax - that is, a pneumothorax occurring with no known precipitating cause or underlying lung pathology.
Unless otherwise specified, in each of your responses, please consider a young adult patient with no significant comorbidities and has already undergone appropriate initial management (observation, aspiration, drainage, or similar).
Any demographic information will be used to help us interpret the information we collect.
No identifiable information or individual responses will be published.

On 31 December 2019, the World Health Organization (WHO) was informed of a cluster of patients presenting with pneumonia in China. This disease became pandemic on 11 March 2020.
During these challenging times, we all face the COVID-19 crisis, and significantly our patients are impacted by how our health care systems, hospitals, and departments are trying to manage this crisis.
Currently, we are facing mostly the second or even the third wave of the pandemic. For some countries, this means an even higher prevalence than during the first wave.
Therefore Our Society wants to learn again from its members how they get along with resilience, what is different from the first wave, and what they should tackle during a possible new coming waves of this dreadful infection.
Please take a moment to complete this questionnaire. We truly care on how you all are currently dealing with the COVID-19 situation along with patients awaiting in your list for surgery.
One answer per institution would suffice, but you will only be able to complete the questionnaire during this two weeks since this is a survey about the current situation.

An ESTS questionnaire on Pulmonary Metastasectomy for Colorectal Pulmonary Metastases

Treatment of colorectal pulmonary metastases by means of surgical resection remains a
topic of debate. Despite the available literature, there is considerable risk for national and
international practice variation.
We would like to ask the ESTS members to participate in this online survey to investigates
the current clinical practice among European Society of Thoracic Surgeon (ESTS) members.
The survey is anonymous and will take 7-8 minutes to complete.
