Clinical Applications - Multi-Specialty


Participants Any scientist, student, engineer, medical practitioner, and personnel involved in other aspects of health care, and/or industries, as well as all with an interest in these topical areas are invited to attend.

Background Requirements Individuals who participate in the sessions should have a basic interest in laser medicine and surgery and the potential applications of these technologies. Although it is not a prerequisite, attendees would ideally have some basic understanding of laser tissue interactions. Individual attendees do not need to have significant experience or expertise in laser medicine or surgery.

Educational Needs/Expected Learning Objectives This section will present and discuss topical surgical applications in a variety of disciplines and research. Relevant clinical and laboratory investigations and patient outcomes will be highlighted. It is expected that interdisciplinary interaction and dialogue regarding laser tissue interaction, clinical and basic research results will provide new insights and meet the educational need of participants attending these sessions. After engaging in this educational activity, participants will be able to describe current techniques, and discuss improvements in clinical practice and clinical outcomes. It is hoped that dialogue and didactic material will enable the participants to formulate new ideas and apply new techniques and principles to solve clinical problems relevant to their scope of practice.
