Miniseminars—Presentations, case studies, and/or interactive discussions that will provide an in-depth, state-of-the-art look at a specific topic.

In these sessions, many issues that you face in day-to-day practice are considered. To add to the already lively format, now 25 percent of the Miniseminars will use audience response technology allowing you to reply to a presenter’s questions and instantaneously view your colleagues’ answers.

A few other highlights from the program include:

The Martha Entenmann Tinnitus  Research Center, Inc.: Abraham Shulman, MD, and Barbara Goldstein, PhD; “Tinnitus Treatment Modalities and Neuromodulations: State of the Art 2014.” Moderated by Michael Hoffer, MD; and presented by Michael D. Seidman, MD; Abraham Shulman, MD; Richard Tyler, MD; Berthold Langguth, MD; and Tobias Kleinjung, MD, will speak to the neurobiology for all clinical types of tinnitus that is emerging and reflecting advances in the basic science and neuroscience of brain and brain function and the cochleovestibular system. As tinnitus types begin to be objectively identified in treatment, modalities can be applied in a more precise manner. The goal of this Miniseminar is to examine new and existing tinnitus specifically, in reference to how to apply these techniques of the different tinnitus types. Surgery, intratympanic treatment, neuromodualtion, and magnetic stimulation will all be examined allowing the participants to understand the cutting edge of tinnitus therapy.

“The HPV Head and Neck Cancer Epidemic: What You Need to Know,” moderated by Christin G. Gourin, MD, and presented by Maie St. John, MD, Eduardo Mendez, MD, MS, Harry Quon, MD, and Mariam N. Lango, MD, will address the HPV-associated head and neck cancer as an epidemic striking a younger and healthier population without the usual risk factors for head and neck cancer. Most patients have an excellent prognosis following treatment with surgery or chemoradiation, and the sequel of long-term morbidity from treatment are of increasing concern as patients are expected to live long enough to experience complications. Failure to identify a subset of high risk patients at risk for metastasis, recurrence, and decreased survival can lead to under treatment and poor outcomes. This Miniseminar will discuss the epidemiology, workup, treatment, and surveillance of HPV+ head and neck cancer.
