Cases in Head and Neck Cancer contains material and resources that teach the diagnostic and clinical information that is necessary to successfully manage patients with head and neck cancer. The cases included are adults only and cover contemporary practice issues surrounding HPV, robotic intervention, combined modality treatments, reflux management, and the critical role of the speech-language pathologist throughout the management process of coping with issues of survivorship and caregiver burden.

Head and neck cancer is a debilitating disease that requires multidisciplinary and integrative care. There are limited resources describing complex medical cases that provide information covering all clinical, practical, and interdisciplinary aspects. This text is written by those in the speech-language pathology, otolaryngology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, pathology, nurse case management, radiology, and dietician disciplines, providing a much larger presentation of the head and neck cancer patient who requires multidisciplinary care.

As well as multidisciplinary information, this text contains cases that cover a wide variety of oral and head and neck cancers (i.e. tongue base, tonsil, laryngeal, HPV related etc.) including robotics and combined modality treatment protocols. Specifically, this text covers comprehensive cases from initial evaluation, diagnosis, imaging, and other physiological tests and combined modality management (surgical, chemotherapy, radiation therapy), treatment for effects/side effects of cancer treatment, care plans, discharge plans, and survivorship.

Cases in Head and Neck Cancer intends to teach future medical practitioners how to examine and treat the complexities associated with head and neck cancer. It is a valuable resource for graduate education in speech-language pathology, medical school education, resident education, continuing education for practicing speech-language pathologists, nurse care managers, dietitians, and anyone involved in a head and neck cancer team.
