The British Tinnitus Association (BTA) has today announced their annual tinnitus conference, which will take place from 5 to 9 October 2020.
But, this year, it’s going virtual.
The BTA Virtual Conference 2020 – aimed at audiologists, ENTs, GPs, hearing care professionals, psychologists, tinnitus support groups and researchers – takes place online this autumn with attendees getting full access to five days of lectures, workshops, seminars and networking opportunities, including a key note speech from David Baguley, Professor of Hearing Sciences at the University of Nottingham, on ‘Biobanks – what can they tell us about tinnitus?’.
Each day of the conference presents a different theme – including the psychology of tinnitus, practical skills and the latest in tinnitus research – with topics ranging from sleep to brain imaging, and internet-based CBT to the effects of Covid-19.
Tickets cost £100 each and include access to all recorded conference material for 12 months after the event.
Tickets are available from www.btaconference2020.co.uk
