Program Purpose / Objectives
Upon completion of this course's sessions the clinician and his/her health care delivery team will be able to perform a thorough and comprehensive soft tissue head and neck screening examination, accurately and thoroughly document oral pathology in the patient's clinical record, create an appropriate differential diagnosis and provisional diagnosis, treat and/or manage diagnosed soft tissue oral and oropharyngeal pathology, state and employ current follow-up and referral guidelines, and strengthen their practice's risk management. The sessions' format will consist of clinical cases culled from the speaker's four decades of patient care. At the course's conclusion the health care delivery team will have a greater appreciation for the breadth and scope of oral and maxillofacial pathology especially significant diseases not covered or emphasized in medical/dental training.

The purpose of these lectures is to update the attendees’ knowledge of common ENT and sleep disorders seen in the primary care office. This will include updating clinical guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of facial paralysis, facial pain and headache disorders and "sinus headaches" as well as a discussion of the head and neck manifestations of reflux disease and the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of rhinitis. The sleep medicine lectures will update knowledge in the latest diagnostic and treatment options for obstructive sleep apnea including hypoglossal nerve stimulation. We will discuss other sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, REM sleep behavioral disorder and nocturnal leg movement syndromes. The attendees will learn the basics of CPAP management for patients with OSA and provide a basis for incorporating CPAP care into the primary care office. It is the desired outcome that these lectures will result in improved diagnosis of head and neck and sleep disorders resulting in effective treatment and improved patient outcomes.
Conference Sessions generally take place on days at sea (as itinerary allows), giving you plenty of time to enjoy your meals, evenings and ports of call with your companion, family and friends.
IMPORTANT NOTE: All conferees, their families, and guests must book their cruise within the University at Sea® meeting group through University at Sea® at 800-926-3775 or by registering online. This ensures our company can provide conference services and complimentary social amenities to all meeting participants and their guests. Thank you for your cooperation.
