The Programme:
Our conference programme this year will once more have a strong clinical focus. There will be updates from the world of research, overviews of policy updates, exciting service innovations and examples of clinical excellence. Our main aim is for delegates to leave the conference with a clear idea of how they can implement what they have heard in their own departments or careers. Key sessions will cover cognition, screening programmes, developments in tinnitus research, technology updates and Audiology in primary care.
We are continuing with our streamlined programme with only 3 main parallel tracks, there will be early morning discussion groups and workshops and we are bringing back the popular ‘All You Need to Know’ sessions. New for 2018 is the Professional Development Lounge, here we will be having workshops on integrating research into clinical roles, the launch of the BAA Tinnitus CPD module and an exploration of the new REM guidelines amongst other things.
