Oropharynx Cancer Management, 2019

Wauwatosa, WI US
May 4, 2019

The incidence of oropharynx cancer has been shifting greatly, and there have been important changes to the staging system and prognostic evaluation of these cancers, in addition to ongoing innovations and changes in the treatment paradigm offered these patients – such as radiation dosage, chemotherapy options, and endoscopic surgical options (TORS).  We must apply the most recent data and expert opinion to offer patients the full complement of treatment options for oropharynx cancer. 

Target Audience

Family Practice, Hematology/Oncology, Maxillofacial Surgery, Medical Oncology, Oral Surgery, Otolaryngology, Preventive Medicine, Radiation Oncology, Surgical Oncology, All Medical Staff

  1. Initiate the diagnostic workup and treatment of unknown primary squamous cell carcinoma of the neck

  3. Identify the strongest indications for adjuvant radiation and chemotherapy and note areas of controversy

The conference will educate regarding multidisciplinary evaluation, AJCC staging, prognostic indicators, current prevention and treatments, and evidence-based guidelines.
