Get cutting edge information on new technological solutions and how we might be helped in the future by the exciting world of pharmacology.

A multi-professional day, we’ll be joined by experts in the field looking at why and how to manage children with otitis media. Along with current research, we’ll look at practical tips you can give families and available resources.
