Wednesday 26th June, 4-4.30pm – An overview of the information and advice section of the new NICE guidelines on otitis media with effusion in under 12s, and suggestions for resources available to help you support families and early years settings.

Online, free of charge

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published new guidelines on otitis media with effusion in under 12s last August. The previous guidelines were published fifteen years before in 2008. The new guidelines include a change in terminology from a period of ‘Watchful Waiting’ to ‘Monitoring and Support’. Given that 80% of children will have glue ear on at least one occasion by the age of four, this session will consider the advice that families need to promote positive outcomes for young children with a fluctuating temporary hearing loss caused by glue ear. In response to participant feedback, we are trialling this event in the afternoon. Please email our Education Advisor Carole at [email protected] to book your free place. We look forward to hearing from you!
