Iowa Head and Neck Protocols (medicine.uiowa.edu/iowaprotocols). Designed to bridge the gaps between concept and implementation, the Iowa Head and Neck Protocols, edited by Henry Hoffman, MD, professor of otolaryngology and radiation oncology at the University of Iowa Health Care and the Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa, are educational resources for patients, speech pathologists, physicians, nurses, and all kinds of healthcare professionals to learn about different surgical procedures in otolaryngology. The site is continuing to increase in popularity, now with nearly 80,000 page views each month and was recently updated for easier mobile use. “It thrills me when a patient has come in before a procedure and tells me, ‘I already saw it on the Iowa Protocols website,’” said Dr. Hoffman.
