Watch the pre-recorded version of the first ENT in-person event of the academic year on the latest, most relevant topics and the annual Presidential address, organised by both the Otology and the Laryngology & Rhinology Sections. These meetings offer the perfect opportunity for networking and socialising with colleagues and renowned speakers.

In the morning meeting, the Semon Lecture, delivered by Mr Shahzada Ahmed, will consider how to achieve surgical excellence by considering surgery and other high-performance disciplines. Prof Hopkins will consider the evolution of endoscopic sinus surgery focusing on how careful case selection and the integration of novel therapies may improve outcomes for patients with chronic rhinosinusitis. We will encourage participants to reflect on their own surgical practice, question case selection and how to improve their own outcomes.

In the afternoon meeting, the international balance expert Prof Adolfo Bronstein will explore the central mechanisms involved in balance and how these can be affected by disease and therapeutic interventions. Prof Rea will consider the evolution of balance medicine within the context of a busy ENT practice and will focus on the fascinating interplay of peripheral balance control with central mechanisms and how a thorough understanding of this will enhance patient outcomes.

By attending this event, you will learn:

  • The evolution of endoscopic surgical treatments for chronic rhinosinusitis
  • To consider the appropriate selection of patients for surgery and identify patients where alternative treatments are indicated
  • How to achieve ‘excellence’ in ENT surgery from other specialties
  • The evolution of our knowledge of the mechanisms underlying disorders of balance
  • The appropriate management of patients with balance disorders

This pre-recorded webinar will be available seven days after the in-person event on 3 November 2023. Registered event participants will receive the link to the recording via email on 10 November 2023 to watch on-demand for up to 60 days.
