Mediplacements will be exhibiting at the upcoming British Academy of Audiology's (BAA's) 14th Annual Conference later this month and we'd love to see you there!

The conference begins on Thursday November 16th at the Bournemouth International Centre, ending on Friday November 17th.

The event will provide attendees with networking opportunities, as well as the chance to hear the latest research abstracts from the field of audiology, discover the latest developments in the sector and take part in discussions about the industry, including via a series of 'back to basics' breakout sessions.

Meanwhile, the popular 'all you need to know' sessions from previous years will be brought back due to high demand.

A particular programme highlight will be the Adrian Davis lecture, delivered this year by Dave Fabry on the recent deregulation of hearing aids in the US and what this means for the UK. This will be followed by Dr Richard Tyler's keynote lecture on the potential of cognitive behavioural therapy for treating tinnitus.

During the afternoon of the first day, there'll be a round-table discussion in the main auditorium entitled 'Future-proofing your workforce: Apprenticeships in Audiology'.

On the second day of the BAA conference, the Bamford Lecture will be delivered by Gwen Carr, discussing the relationship between telehealth and teenagers. Another keynote lecture will follow, this time delivered by Elizabeth Convey on the self-fitting of hearing aids.

The 14th annual conference will end with the BAA Awards ceremony and a closing speech by Sue Falkingham, incoming president of the academy.

There will of course be many exhibitors from the healthcare industry too. The Mediplacements team will be over at stand 40 during the event, so do come and see us and have a chat about how we could help you find your next audiology position.
