SELF-ASSESSMENT IN HEAD AND NECK SURGERY AND ONCOLOGY By James Paul O’Neill PDF
SELF-ASSESSMENT IN HEAD AND NECK SURGERY AND ONCOLOGY By James Paul O’Neill PDF Is the best book to review our ENT lectures and books..we suggest everyone to buy this book..The term “cancer of the head and neck” generally includes neoplasms arising from the mucosa of the upper aerodigestive tract, including the nasal cavity and paranasal sinuses, as well as tumors of the salivary glands, thyroid and parathyroid glands, and neoplasms arising from the skin, soft tissues, and bones of the craniofacial skeleton. Tumors of neurovascular origin and those arising in the ear canal, temporal bone, orbit, and skull base are also included in this list. Over the course of the past century, the specialty treating these tumors has evolved into a very complex multidisciplinary eld requiring the expertise of head and neck surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, maxillofacial/dental surgeons, reconstructive microsurgeons, and other allied specialists. The training programs for specializing in this complex specialty have also evolved over the course of the past 30 years, with the need to incorporate training in increasingly complex technologies, development of new skill sets, and integration of exposure to nonsurgical disciplines. An increasing number of textbooks have been published over the past 20 years, as well as a plethora of published journal articles, with emphasis on multidisciplinary treatments. Ample literature is available for the trainee and the practitioner to remain abreast of the advances made in the eld.
However, no specialty or board certi cation examination is available in this complex eld, and thus there is no measure of one’s competency in the specialty. The graduates of the senior fellowship program in head and neck surgery and oncology and the faculty of the head and neck program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York have created this self-assessment compendium to measure the fundamental basic knowledge required of an individual engaged in the specialty of head and neck surgery and oncology. This book by no means is suf cient to measure competency in the specialty, nor is it intended to be suf cient to gain certi cation in the specialty. On the other hand, it certainly introduces the reader to the process of self-assessment of knowledge, judgment, an algorithmic thinking process, and the decision-making ability in dealing with day-to-day problems in patients with neoplasms aris- ing in the head and neck.
Each chapter contains a topic, following the sequence of the chapters in Jatin Shah’s Head and Neck Surgery and Oncology, Fourth Edition. The questions are presented in three categories: (1) True or False, (2) Single Best Answer, and (3) Multiple Choice combinations. Each chapter includes the basic Core Knowledge required and has a Suggested Reading list. The answers to the questions are provided at the end of each chapter. It is our hope that the reader will bene t from initially taking the examination, pursue the topic further by reviewing the Core Knowl- edge, and then gain further knowledge from reading the recommended textbooks. We also hope that this initial attempt at self-assessment will stimulate the reader to remain engaged in continuing medical education in order to remain current with this rapidly advancing specialty.
