The list of contributing authors includes many individuals who participated in the preparation of earlier versions of the manuscript. Because each protocol has evolved gradually through multiple revisions with multiple authors, the contributing authors are not identified with individual protocols. As a result, the listing of a clinician as a contributing author should not be interpreted to mean that he agrees with all of the biases presented.

The Iowa Head and Neck Protocols organizes diagnostic and management preferences in an accessible manner. The protocols are constructed in outline form to provide a brief and directed approach to diseases of the head and neck. The protocols should be considered helpful guidelines reflecting biases within a single institution. It is important to recognize that there are viable alternative approaches to patient care that are not presented. The protocols are not designed to serve the purposes of a surgical atlas or didactic text. The Iowa Head and Neck Protocols are designed to bridge the gap between procedural concepts and their implementation.
