Program Description

Many common ENT conditions can be managed at the primary health care level with the potential for decreasing the financial burden on patients, hospitals, and specialty referrals as well as improving quality and timeliness of care. Using realistic learning experiences, demonstrations, and hands-on skill building techniques, this workshop provides an understanding of allergy and hearing loss screening, OMM/OMT for ENT application, and the opportunity for advanced level training in the flexible nasolaryngoscopy procedure. Attendees have the option to meet requirements for the Certificate of Proficiency in flexible nasolaryngoscopy in addition to the CME Certificate.

  4. Evaluate the efficacy of flexible nasolaryngoscopy as a diagnostic option in the primary care setting.
