Management of Malignant Tumors of the Hard Palate and Upper Alveolar Ridge

Tumors of the hard palate and upper alveolus are a rare and heterogeneous group of oral cavity malignancies. The appropriate treatment of these patients requires close cooperation between the surgeon and the surgical pathologist to ensure the correct diagnosis prior to initiating therapy. We will review the appropriate surgical anatomy of this region, discuss concepts in management of the primary, message of reconstruction, and the role of neck dissection and adjuvant treatment.

Changes in World Health Organization (WHO) Classification of Oral,
Head and Neck Pathology

Patients present to the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon with a spectrum of oral, head and neck lesions for diagnosis and management. Most often, biopsy sampling and pathologic diagnosis represents the cornerstone for management. Changes in diagnostic classification, overlapping histologic criteria and/or method of sampling may impact clinical decision making. A primer of the changes within the 4th edition of the World Health Organization’s Head and Neck Pathology book will be provided as well as a review of selected controversial topics that may impact areas of clinical practice.

The class will be an official American Heart Association certification course for Healthcare Provider BLS and ACLS. Successful completion will be documented with the AHA’s new ecard system (the ecard format is now mandated by AHA).

Your class gets right into the certification process. We will start out with skills verification for BLS (CPR), then review the advanced practice protocols and pharmacology (bradycardia, tachycardia, acute coronary syndrome, cardiac arrest, and post-resuscitation care). After a short break, we will practice these protocols in an interactive scenario-based learning environment that invites the opportunity to ask questions and fine-tune your approach to the ACLS patient. The class is completed with the certification exams for ACLS and BLS.
Recertification is a 4 hour course.
