About this event

  • Date and time Fri 5 Nov 2021 from 2:00pm to 4:30pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Otology

As otologists, we are “hearing” surgeons and have the ability to restore and rehabilitate hearing. The workhorse outcome measure is the pure tone audiogram but is this fit for purpose? Are there other, more functional, assessments of hearing that we should be looking to make a new gold standard? This event aims to understand the strengths and limitations of different methods of assessment and will provide an in-depth examination of how we assess hearing qualitatively and quantitatively.
