Covid has been an unprecedented pandemic which has presented new challenges to all of us working in healthcare. The pandemic hit certain areas of the world very hard and others much less so. At times like this it is always useful to look around the world to see if we can share experiences and learn from each other.

I am delighted that we have been able to get 4 of the world's leading ear surgeons with differing experience of Covid to share their experiences and thoughts on both dealing with the Covid crisis and returning to normal outpatient practice and ear surgery. Thomas Roland in New York and Miguel Aristegui in Madrid have been in hospitals severely hit by Covid whilst Thomas Lenarz in Hannover has been in the country that has perhaps dealt best with the crisis. Romain Kania in Paris has been somewhere in between.

All 4 of these esteemed professors are excellent presenters and I am sure we are in for a stimulating and informative webinar. I do hope you will be able to join us.

A certificate of attendance and CPD certificate with CPD credit(s) will be issued to those watching the webinar. Certificates of attendance for CPD will be automatically issued after 7 days, but only where a delegate watches the webinar live in its entirety.
