The key topics which will cover: 

  • A contemporary update on middle ear ventilation and how this pertains to ear disease in children
  • Examine the latest epidemiological data on factors associated with the development of chronic ear disease in children.
  • Learn about the assessment and up to date management of tympanic membrane retraction pockets
  • Understand the assessment, causes and management of balance disorders in children
  • Provide a forum to delegates to ask questions of the experts on a wide range of paediatric Otology issues

In order to provide wide and safe access to RSM Otology education, the session will be run as a webinar. This is an interactive webinar and there will be the opportunity for delegates to ask questions at the end of the session.
