SAVE THE DATE AUSTRALIAN OTITIS MEDIA
CONFERENCE 2-4th May 2012 Fremantle,
WA NACCHO/OMOZ

NACCHO is now partnering with OMOZ to conduct an
Australian Otitis Media Conference. The
conference will be held in Fremantle, Western
Australia. The program will inform conference
participants how research transfers into health
service practice. Most services are busy with
the practice of identifying ear health conditions
and advising of the most appropriate care for
their clients. Several research studies and
various treatment guidelines have been updated
through the years to help reduce the burden of
preventable hearing loss associated with ear
health disease, particularly as Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islander people have the highest
rates of severe OM than non-Aboriginal people.
The topics are streamlined to inform you of how
research continues to guide otitis media clinical
care and ear and hearing health prevention and
promotion programs. This conference welcomes an
audience from all health care professionals such
as AHWs, doctors, nurses, audiologists,
audiometrists and ENT surgeons, scientists and
other relevant specialists who work with
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
people. NACCHO particularly extends an
invitation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander ear health workers and their relevant
primary health care services in the Aboriginal
Community Controlled Health Sector and the
Community Health Care Services to attend. A
sponsorship/subsidy will be available through a
registration process for students and AHWs.
Registration closing date is 2nd April
2012. Abstract submissions are now open and will
close on 16th March 2012. Refer to the program
