If no, tell us how...
If yes, please explain...
If yes, how...
Applying new techniques and knowledge
Better understanding of topical antimicrobials.
EXPANDED MY KNOWLEGE OF SEPTOPLASTY WITH ENDOSCOPIC SINUS SURGERY
Future diagnostic and treatment tools for CRS
Improved knowledge of basic science research date in Rhinology
Improved knowledge of current training and simulation residents and trainees in rhinology
improved post-operative care for my polyp patients
Learned about improved coding techniques and cutting edge science
more frequently use dexamethasone for pain relief
New strategies for mgt of polyps and dysosmia Also, helpful recs for coding re: balloon sinuplasty
new treatment modalities, chronic sinusitis outcoes data
Supplemented my foundational knowledge of rhinology
Will suggest olfactory training with budesonide rinses now to dysosmia patients.
Tell us how well or poorly we met any of the educational objectives
Asa general otolaryngologist, I have a bias towards clinically applicable subjects. Although I recognize the importance of basic science, I want stuff I can use. I want to improve the care I provide to patients now
Content very applicable to a Rhinology practice
educational objectives met
educational objectives were met
Educational objectives were met. New data and research were presented.
Excellent approach to trating chronic sinusitis
Fantastic conference with a nice mix of basic science/translational research and clinical advances. I much prefer this format to the Academy ARS meeting.
I thought the research was excellent
it was very informative and i acquired alot of knowledge from this meeting
Met very well
met very well
Objectives were met and exceeded my expectations. I don't usually go to COSM but this time, so happy I did
Objectives were well met.
Provided a well-balance meeting covering both clinical and basic science topics in Rhinology
The educational content was focused on research that aims to explain the underlying etiology of chronic sinusitis, with the diversity of research I feel this goal was met.
Very enjoyable sessions, some would benefit from allowing more time to the presenter.
Very well. Just keeping me aware of current research topics in Rhinology.
Well. MOre basic science this year. LIke more clinical. But I know you have two audiences
Would appreciate more clinical content, less basic science and/or medical education sessions.
WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE MORE DIDACTIC SESSIONS
Do you think what you learned will benefit you in your practice?
how to manage recurrent polyposis
not currently but can see early signs of new potential treatment options
postoperative pain after sinus surgery is minimal PCPs over diagnose chronic sinusitis 99% of the time Gender differences in reporting after FESS
understand inflammation better
yes, lots of things were discussed
If yes, how...
applying latest research to improve patient care
as previously started, learned some new things on post-operative management of my polyp patients
Awareness of emerging therapeutic options to discuss with patients
Better scientific approach to care
better sinus understanding
By better understanding the clinical significance of the microbiome
confirmation and improve surgical techniques
Consider new reconstructive paradigms for skull base defects
Decrease opioid prescribing after sinus surgery Critical evaluate referrals for chronic sinusitis to see if they fit the criteria for possible sinus surgery. Take gender into account after FESS
I was not aware of olfactory training prior to the talk I saw at ARS.
I will apply some of what I learned
i will definitely take in to consideration lots of things
I will do things better
I will institute more quality metrics regularly with my nose and sinus patients and standardize some of the care we deliver for rhinology patients, which will allow better tracking of outcomes, clinical research projects, etc
I will no longer second-guess myself in some clinical decision making situations, but also will continue to recognize just how much there is yet to learn
Improve how I will train residents/students. also hopefully apply patient videos and pre-op education as per Mount Sinai
Improve patient care
Improved decision making
Improved post-op care routine
Improved understanding of the treatment of fungal diseases
Keep up to date on most recent Rhinology advances
latest management gave us insight in treatment of acute and chronic sinusitis
Management of complex CRS
More aware about new treatments and outcomes
More options for CRS patients
More topical therapy
narcotic use in perioperative management considerations helpful, improvements in post operative care
overall critical thinking of patient management
Relationship of AR with sleep
skull base reconstruction
The Eustachian tube talks are very valuable
Use topical antibiotic therapy better.
WHAT I LEARNED WILL BENEFIT MY OFFICE PRACTICE AND DECISION MAKING.
Will change day to day billing and some mgt of chronic rhinosinusitis / polyps patients
will code better
Tell us what was good or bad about any part of the educational activity, content, speakers, materials, anything
A bit too much reliance upon "panel Q&A sessions.
ALL WAS VERY GOOD
content was excellent
Enjoyed both the scientific sessions and the poster session.
Everything was excellent; only issue was the exhibitor hall was too far and breaks were too short so felt like I didn't have enough time to go down there and meet with them and make it in time not to miss any of the lectures Could also have stayed more on schedule with talks
everything was good
Everything was good
Excellent presentations, slides
excellent speakers, especially WiR!
Good - newest research.
Good speakers and content
I enjoyed the ongoing debate regarding cytokines, various cell types, and origins of CRS subtypes. Speakers on all topics seemed very candid about their practice patterns, challenges, etc.
I know the opioid issue is huge, but there were maybe a disproportionate number of talks dedicated to pain management
I would like to see more about AERD at next meetings
Interesting opioid discussion, but I would like more guidelines from the society on prescribing these for my sinus patients.
relevant topics were presented
research portion was very informative
rooms were larger for attendance
Simultaneous lecture halls forced me to miss some talks
Skull base recon panel was excellent.
The panels were great
the speakers were excellent
THERE IS ALWAYS AN OVERLAP BETWEEN AND WITHIN SOCIETIES THAT SOMETIMES CONFLICTS WITH INTERESTS
too much basic science
well balanced program
What questions are you having in your practice that you would like to see addressed in an educational activity?
ALLERGY AND IMMUNOLOGY COULD BE BETTER REPRESENTED
better coding and hands on practical information
Billing and coding strategies
Challenges regarding endotyping of various chronic sinusitis patients, cost-effective testing and treatment based on current knowledge.
CRS. SLEEP AND NOSE, ALERGIC,POLYPS,IT IS SURGERY TO MUCH USE AS A TREATMENT?
I feel like that’s not the goal of COSM
I would like to improve my management of CRS pts who have had adequate surgery but still suffer with significant sinonasal issues
Integrating CRS endotyping into clinical practice
latest surgical coding
management of CF, PCD, immunocompromised
More clarity around definition of chronic sinusitis, in terms of sub-types
More sleep topics
New approaches in FESS
no specific areas at this time
not sure yet
OFFICE SURGICAL PROCEDURES
Outpatient surgical management of recurrent nasal polyps/benign tumors
post op complications after Sinus surgery
Reflux in Rhinology
Safety of in-office sinus surgery
See previous comment: guidelines for opioid administration after sinus/septum surgery
Should FESS be maximal with large Ostia vs limited as with balloon sinuplasty? What is the evidence for treating recurrent acute sinusitis surgically?
treatment of chronic pseudomonas colonization
Updates in allergy testing (comparison with Allergy & Immunology)
We need to have better guidlines for when not to transnasal approach and just do transcranial approach
