UPDATE ON ONLINE ACCESS TO CONFERENCE TOMORROW.
There will be ways to follow the events at the HPV Symposium in Galway, Ireland tomorrow even if you are not on the Emerald Isle. The outline of the day is as follows.
A symposium on the causal role of the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) in Head and Neck Cancer. The intention of the symposium is to discuss various clinical and public health responses to this emerging epidemic.
Key questions to be addressed:
- HPV Detection methods in head and neck cancer – What algorithm works best?
- Should treatment & management differ for a HPV+ head and neck cancer patient?
- What is the economic burden of HPV-associated head and neck cancers?
- Is it time to vaccinate boys against HPV?
HPV-related head and neck cancers are more common in men in their 40s and 50s and strategies to raise public awareness among this cohort of the population will be debated.
Here is a interview from RTE News with Tony O’Connor an ENT Surgeon who will be speaking at the conference.
