PRELIMINARY PROGRAMME International workshop in head and neck cancer management 1 November 2014 - Budapest, Hungary Dear participant, A warm welcome to all attending the “International workshop in head and neck cancer management”. I would like to inform you that as of 28 April 2014 the name of our Foundation changed to EXCEMED – Excellence in Medical Education. The name change will not impact your registration status in this or any other Foundation event. This transition marks an exciting point in the evolution of the Foundation. We are proud to have provided world-class education to thousands of healthcare professionals over the past four decades as a result, the Foundation has become synonymous with delivery excellence and high-impact CME. As we further develop our scientific and geographical presence it is important to us that our name accurately reflects the independent nature of the education we provide; EXCEMED symbolises our enduring mission to support the best possible outcomes for patients through the medical education we offer. We take pride in our complete dedication to the provision of CME - it is our sole focus and our passion. I wish you an inspiring and successful learning experience in Budapest. Yours Sincerely Rachel Clark CEO, EXCEMED 1 Aim Advances in radiation and medical oncology of head and neck cancer are improving outcomes, but there are many areas of unmet need. Optimal management is complex, requiring a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach incorporating best use of multimodal therapeutic approach combined with a range of supportive services for a patient-centered, personalized care; up-to-date knowledge and guidelines are essential. Combined modality treatment with concomitant chemotherapy and radiotherapy represents the standard of care for patients with advanced head and neck cancer and the introduction of new molecular targeted therapies lead to a further improvement in treatment outcomes. This live educational workshop will offer the opportunity to learn from a recognized and experienced multidisciplinary team current therapeutic options for patients with advanced and metastatic head and neck cancer. Effective interaction between the multidisciplinary team and participants will be encouraged through clinical case discussion dedicated to treatment planning and delivery. Learning objectives After attending this live educational workshop, participants will be able to: • Define the methodology of the multidisciplinary approach in the clinical management of head and neck cancer patients • Review and apply current and novel therapeutic approaches for the combined treatment of head and neck cancer patients • Discuss side effect-management issues and recognize the importance of supportive care in the treatment of patients with head and neck cancer Target audience Clinical and radiation oncologists experienced in head and neck cancer management coming from Middle East, Saudi Arabia, Arab Gulf, Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan. EXCEMED adheres to the principles of the Good CME Practice group (gCMEp). 2 Scientific organiser Lisa Licitra Head and Neck Cancer Medical Oncology Unit Fondazione IRCCS Istituto Nazionale dei Tumori Milan, Italy Share your opinion with us!
