The British Academy of Audiology (BAA) will be holding its 15th annual conference in Liverpool next month - and Mediplacements will be there with details of the latest vacancies in the sector.

Registration is now open for the event, which will take place at ACC Liverpool on November 8th and 9th. 

The BAA has said the event will have a "strong clinical focus" this year, adding: "Our 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. 

"Key sessions will cover cognition, screening programmes, developments in tinnitus research, technology updates and audiology in primary care."

The event will begin with the exhibition hall opening at 08:30 on November 8th, with Mediplacements based at Stand number 53. This will be open throughout the event, with opportunities to come down to the hall including the first morning break from 10:30 to 11:15, lunchtime from 12:45 to 14:00 and the afternoon break from 16:00 to 16:25. 

On November 9th, there will be similar chances during the breaks and before the start to come down to the stand and find out about various career development opportunities.

The conference will be opened and closed by BAA president Sue Falkingham, and there will be a wide range of talks on various topics. The president will introduce the Adrian Davis Lecture, which will be given this year by Dr Nicholas Reed on the topic of his current research at the John Hopkins School of Medicine.

High achievers in the profession will be recognised at the BAA awards, while the afternoon will incorporate the organisation's annual general meeting. 

The final session of the first day will include a roundtable discussion with a focus on bringing together different generations in the workplace, something that may be of particular interest to younger audiologists who are looking towards their next stage of career development.

Highlights of the second day will include the Bamford Lecture by Andrew Whitehouse, followed by keynote lectures from Professor of Audiology at the University of Queensland Louise Hickson and director of the NHS Leadership Academy Stephen Hart.
