Target Audience and Needs
Otolaryngologists, neurotologists, other faculty, residents, fellows, and medical students need to be regularly updated in specific areas of otology and neurotology, including history, contemporary thought processes, relevant scientific literature, problem solving, and procedural/technical skills. The aim of the series is to provide a resource of clinical knowledge to enhance the quality of patient care and outcomes.
Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, literature review, and panel discussion.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Implement diagnostic and therapeutic "best practices" for patients presenting with a complaint of hearing loss or dizziness.
- Apply the standards of care for patients with infectious and neoplastic diseases of the temporal bone and lateral skull base.
- Use case presentations to recognize the typical clinical indications in patients who visit a Otology/Neurotology clinic and identify the proper intervention.
- Foster collegiality among colleagues in fields related to Otology/Neurotology, including Diagnostic Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Neurosurgery, Neurology, Ophthalmology, Audiology, Physical/Vestibular Therapy, and Pediatrics, to improve clinical practice.
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
