Contemporary Management of Neoplastic Diseases of the Oral Cavity
In this session, attendees will hear from practitioners who treat patients with oral cancer. Over the course of the session, presenters will share best practices from Columbia’s multidisciplinary head and neck/oral cancers team to maximize treatment outcomes while sparing patients’ morbidity, as well as exciting new research in head and neck cancers on the horizon.

Upon conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
· Describe types of oral cancer in patient populations
· Discuss how present-day treatment improves cancer outcomes while preserving form and function
· Recognize clinical lesions that are considered premalignant, such as leukoplakia and erythroplakia
· Understand the role of tissue biopsy in everyday clinical practice and when/how to biopsy lesions
· Recognize the varied clinical appearances of oral cancer
· Develop sound treatment strategies and referral systems for management of patients with potentially cancerous oral lesions
