This course will provide participants with the information needed to incorporate updated technology and technique in treatment planning to improve patient experience. Practitioners will be able to apply presented clinical and research evidence regarding improvement in treatment techniques and modalities to their practice resulting in improved patient satisfaction.
The 2017 Frontiers in Pediatric Otolaryngology will address the following professional practice gaps in pediatric otolaryngology:
- Newly published guidelines that might not have been familiarized by the practitioners (e.g. otitis media with effusion and thyroid carcinoma)
- Standard surgical procedures that practitioners might have overlooked preoperative evaluations and long-term complications (e.g. turbinate surgery and laryngotracheal reconstruction)
- Common medical conditions that don’t qualify for guideline development (e.g. evaluation of speech, swallowing, tinnitus and vertigo).
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Evaluate the relevance of thyroid carcinoma treatment in children based on the recently published guideline for adults by the American Thyroid Society.
- Identify treatment options for long-term complications following laryngotracheal reconstructive procedures.
- Analyze newly released clinical guideline regarding quality improvement opportunities in managing otitis media.
- Assess latest evaluation paradigm for swallowing disorders evaluation.
- Acquire knowledge in facial nerve rehabilitation following disease or iatrogenic causes.
