Registration is now open! For more information visit: www.baaudiology.org/conference
According to the BAA, the conference program will continue to have a strong clinical focus. There will be updates from the world of research, overviews of policy updates, service innovations, and examples of clinical excellence. The 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. All invited speakers are asked to summarize their talks with the popular “3 Things to Do on Monday” message. Key sessions will cover pediatric assessment, vestibular updates for both assessment and rehabilitation, how to deliver patient-centered care, implementing new technology in both the NHS and private sector, and implantable devices.
The BAA will continue with its streamlined program with only 3 main parallel tracks; there will be a range of invited speakers and free papers and, after lunch each day, longer workshops. There will be a number of new additions for 2019; on Thursday, there will be a walk-through dementia clinic where attendees will be able to review and find resources on display for their own clinics and speak to experts in the field. On Friday, there will be pre-bookable IDA Pediatric workshops running in the morning. Tickets will be released for this shortly before the conference at no extra cost for delegates on a first-come, first-served basis. Friday afternoon bring the return of the CRN workshop for those looking to incorporate research into their clinical roles. During breaks, attendees will be able to drop into short presentations and demonstrations in the new Pods which will be in the exhibition hall.
