A lot research ideas

Applying new techniques and knowledge

better care of patients with rhinologic disorders

better patient selection

Better understanding of topical antimicrobials.

Decision analysis

different practice techniques

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

Increased knowledge

Learned about improved coding techniques and cutting edge science

more frequently use dexamethasone for pain relief

new research data to implement in improving patient care.

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
Answers   
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

average

Clear and concise presentations

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

excellent

Excellent

Excellent approach to trating chronic sinusitis

excellent forum

excellent meeting at cosm

Extremely well

fairly good

Fantastic conference with a nice mix of basic science/translational research and clinical advances. I much prefer this format to the Academy ARS meeting.

great conference

Great conference!

great meeting

Great!

I thought the research was excellent

It was a great meeting. As the meeting overlapped with ERS, it is sad that there was almost no audience at the end of the meeting.

it was very informative and i acquired alot of knowledge from this meeting

Met expectations

Met expectations

Met very well

met very well

met well

Most objectives met- more outcomes science would be helpful

Objectives were met and exceeded my expectations. I don't usually go to COSM but this time, so happy I did

Objectives were met.

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 good

very satisfied

Very well

Very well

Very well

Very well.

Very well.

Very well. Just keeping me aware of current research topics in Rhinology.

Well done

Well met

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?
Answers   
Great to hear about ETD ballon

how to manage recurrent polyposis

Improved coding.

maybe

not currently but can see early signs of new potential treatment options

PATIENT ADVOCACY

postoperative pain after sinus surgery is minimal PCPs over diagnose chronic sinusitis 99% of the time Gender differences in reporting after FESS

Research ideas

understand inflammation better

yes, lots of things were discussed

Yes.

 
If yes, how...
Answers   
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 management of patient with CRS

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 patient care.

Improved post-op care routine

improved technique

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

my outcomes will be improved

narcotic use in perioperative management considerations helpful, improvements in post operative care

new data to implement in practice.

New knowledge

new strategies for those who fail initial surgery

new treatment modalities

OFFICE TREATMENT

overall critical thinking of patient management

Relationship of AR with sleep

skull base reconstruction

surgical approaches

The Eustachian tube talks are very valuable

Updated information on the latest research in Rhinology

use of biologics

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

will implement new techniques and information

 
Tell us what was good or bad about any part of the educational activity, content, speakers, materials, anything
Answers   
A bit too much reliance upon "panel Q&A sessions.

all great talks

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 meeting as usual

Excellent presentations

Excellent presentations, slides

excellent speakers, especially WiR!

Good - newest research.

good content

Good panels

Good speakers and content

great panelists

great presentations

Great program

great speakers

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.

Nice meeting

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

venue was disorganized

well balanced program

Well organized

 
What questions are you having in your practice that you would like to see addressed in an educational activity?
Answers   
ALLERGY AND IMMUNOLOGY COULD BE BETTER REPRESENTED

better coding and hands on practical information

Billing and coding strategies

building a practice

Challenges regarding endotyping of various chronic sinusitis patients, cost-effective testing and treatment based on current knowledge.

coding

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

improved coding

In office procedures and ballon sinus plasty up date

Integrating CRS endotyping into clinical practice

latest surgical coding

management of CF, PCD, immunocompromised

management of recalcitrant chronic sinusitis

More clarity around definition of chronic sinusitis, in terms of sub-types

More minimally-invasive technique presentations

More sleep topics

narcotic prescriptions

New (upcoming) Technology session during the meeting

New approaches in FESS

no specific areas at this time

none to mention

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
