Current and New Concepts in the Biology and Treatment of Head and Neck Cancer
Saturday, November 9, 2013 at 7:15am to 3:45pm
Head and neck cancer is a prevalent form of cancer, affecting nearly half a million individuals each year; however, it is not as frequently seen in the community as other common forms of cancer. This full-day course will provide a multi-disciplinary perspective on treating patients with head and neck cancer, focusing on chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. Through lecture and case discussion, faculty will review the latest research in the field, highlighting recent advances and therapeutic management of this disease. In addition, several new topics will be discussed at this year’s course, including patient counseling about HPV, oral complications related to head and neck cancers, and genomic profiling of patients. The course is intended to provide attendees with new knowledge and management strategies that can be applied to their own clinical practices. It is designed for medical, surgical and radiation oncologists; head and neck surgeons; oral surgeons; otolaryngologists; oncology nurse practitioners; and other interested providers. * ACGME Competencies: This course is designed to meet one or more of the following Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education competencies: Patient care - Medical knowledge - Practice-based learning and improvement.
