As medicine moves increasingly toward evidence-based care, there is evidence that treatment practices and adherence to standard protocols is not optimal in Otolaryngology. There is lack of knowledge of current best evidence. Even when evidence is known, there is lack of consistent implementation in practice of best practices or standard protocols. This course is an update course, on best practices, best evidence, and new techniques and technologies and their application to patient care.
Practicing otolaryngologists and residents in training nationally.
It is intended that this Weill Cornell CME activity will lead to improved patient care, including improvements in knowledge, competence, or performance. At the conclusion of this activity, participant should be able to:
- Implement current evaluation and treatment models for hearing loss.
