Date: Tuesday 15th October 2019 (Optional balance workshop) and Wednesday 16th October 2019 (Keynote and other presentations) Venue: The Dunedin Centre, Dunedin.
The meeting will commence on Tuesday with an optional balance workshop, which will include a series of didactic teaching sessions in the morning, followed by a hands-on practical in the afternoon. Due to space restrictions, places in the workshop are limited, particularly for the afternoon practical. The afternoon practical will take place within the School of Physiotherapy, 325 Great King Street and will include four workstations, providing an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with video head impulses, vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials, posturography, and positional testing and particle repositioning manoeuvres. Keynote and other NZSBDV presentations will take place on Wednesday at the Dunedin Centre in conjunction with the NZOHNS conference.
If you are attending the full NZSOHNS conference and would like to include the Tuesday balance workshop (for an extra $85), please register through the NZSOHNS conference website. For all others, please refer to the following pricing structure which includes discounted rates for NZSBDV members and register via the link below:
The meeting will include keynote speakers, Dr Louisa Murdin, an Audiovestibular Physician from London with an interest in vestibular migraine and the influence of psychological factors on vestibular disorders, and Professor Robert Briggs, an Otolaryngologist who will be talking about surgery in vestibular disorders. Invited speakers, Associate Professor Hamish MacDougall and Dr Elodie Chiarovano from the University of Sydney, will participate in both the workshop and Wednesday conference.
