Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of Oncology Volume 04, Issue 13: Highlights from the 2013 Multidisciplinary Head and Neck Cancer Update.
The goals of this program are to improve efficiency and patient outcomes through use of a bundling payment system, and to improve management of patients with advanced laryngeal cancer. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:
1. Explain the steps involved in building a treatment bundle.
2. Identify effects of high-risk patients on bundle pricing.
3. Recognize the implications of bundling for clinicians, insurers, and patients.
4. Consider the evidence on approaches to management of stage III and IV laryngeal cancer.
5. Choose appropriate candidates for laryngeal preservation among patients with advanced laryngeal cancer.
The original programs were presented by Robert Lorenz, MD, MBA, Department of Head and Neck Surgery, Cleveland Clinic Head and Neck Institute, and Medical Director, Cleveland Clinic Health System, Cleveland, OH, and David Adelstein, MD, Professor of Medicine, Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, and Staff Physician, Department of Solid Tumor Oncology, Taussig Cancer Center, Cleveland Clinic.
