Target Audience and Needs
Head and neck surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, neuroradiologists, head and neck pathologists, and speech therapists outside of major tertiary referral centers need to receive regular updates on the diagnosis and multidisciplinary management of head and neck cancer. Complex cases of head and neck cancer will be used as an impetus to review the current standard of care, state-of-the-art treatment modalities, multidisciplinary care, and complications that affect treatment outcomes. The series aims to improve referral pathways, formulate optimal treatment plans, create efficient treatment timelines, and improve overall survival and quality of life.
Educational methods will include case presentations.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Assess the diagnostic study needs of patients with head and neck cancer.
- Implement patient-specific treatment plans for patients with head and neck cancer including, but not limited to, surgical therapies, systemic therapies, radiotherapy, or clinical trials.
- Identify complications following head and neck cancer therapy.
- Employ multidisciplinary treatment strategies to improve quality-of-life outcomes following head and neck cancer therapies.
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
