Description

The National Cancer Institute estimates that approximately 1,638,910 new cancer cases are expected to be diagnosed this year and one-third of those individuals will die from their disease. Cancer accounts for nearly 1 of every 4 deaths and is the second most common cause of death in the U.S. Fortunately, 11.7 million Americans with a history of cancer were alive in 2007, with some still undergoing treatment. Individuals who receive a diagnosis of cancer face many challenges as they proceed through the continuum of care. They require support of all health care providers from the time of diagnosis, through treatment, and after treatment is completed. This course will review the oral effects of cancer treatment and protocols for reducing morbidity and mortality due to oral complications of cancer therapy.
