The mission of the 2013 Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Subspecialty Day is to provide attendees with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art update on treatments in oculofacial plastic surgery. The practice gap was identified by interviews with recognized thought leaders in the field of oculofacial plastic surgery, a review of national data from peer-reviewed published literature and databases, and post-activity surveys from national oculofacial plastic surgery meetings.
The intended audience for this program is practicing oculofacial surgeons.
To provide attendees with a comprehensive update on improved patient care and outcomes.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify and effectively apply modern, evidence-based algorithms in oculofacial plastic surgery disease treatment
- Compare the contemporary management of traumatic, inflammatory, and neoplastic orbital disease using therapies such as biologics, intra-arterial chemotherapy, antibiotics, and surgery
- Evaluate complex orbital and oculoplastics cases to understand treatment outcomes
- Describe the practice patterns of experienced oculofacial practitioners and recognize differences in patient management
