European Tinnitus Course returns after seven year hiatus
The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) are proud and excited to be involved in bringing back the acclaimed European Tinnitus Course after a seven-year hiatus. The 29th running of the course will feature a world class faculty, and a superb, modern venue.
Developed by Dr Ross Coles in the late 1970’s, the European Tinnitus Course is one of the longest running tinnitus courses in the world. However, the content has been completely revised and refreshed, reflecting the many discoveries and innovations in this rapidly developing field.
Presenting modern concepts and management of tinnitus and hyperacusis in a multidisciplinary, evidence-based manner, the course will be comprised of both smaller group sessions, and traditional teaching. Over the three days of the course it will cover the following areas:
- Basic science, definitions and clinical assessment
- Mainstream treatments
- Special populations and other treatment modalities
- Research perspectives
The course is taught by leading tinnitus experts David Baguley, Beth-Anne Culhane, Don McFerran and Laurence McKenna, who between them have clinical and research experience, and are able to synthesise these in a comprehensible and compelling manner. The European Tinnitus Course is aimed at healthcare professionals in audiology, psychology, ENT and audiovestibular medicine, who have already acquired their basic proficiencies but are wishing to specialise in tinnitus or who wish to take their tinnitus knowledge to the next level. The course is also relevant to scientists undertaking research in the field of tinnitus and hyperacusis.
Comments Beth-Anne Culhane, ”This course is suitable for audiologists who see patients with tinnitus and want to build on their knowledge and clinical skills. The course will leave you feeling more confident to help the people who come to see you.”
The course will be held 7-9 June 2018 at The Studio, 51 Lever Street, Manchester M1 4FN and will cost £650 per person. NHS staff may be eligible for a BTA bursary towards the course fee.
