On behalf of the Organising Committee I wish to extend to you a warm Southern welcome to the 72nd Annual General and Scientific Meeting of the New Zealand Society of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, to be held at the Dunedin Centre, Dunedin from 15-18 October 2019.
This year we are pleased to share the meeting with the New Zealand Dizziness, Balance and Vertigo Society. Balance disturbance has a significant impact on those affected and we are sure the NZDBVS contribution will bring an added interest to all participating. We also offer a Nurse’s Day on Friday 18th October, this will focus on aspects of nursing care related to or speciality.
We welcome our international keynote speakers; from the UK, Professor Hisham Mehanna, Dr Louisa Murdin, Miss Victoria Ward and from Australia, our good friends Rob Briggs and Alkis Psaltis. They will augment an enjoyable and informative academic programme with relevance to ORL Head and Neck practise in New Zealand. There will be something for everyone at every level.
Our Society has always enjoyed an excellent relationship with our colleagues in the medical industry. We rely on our regular contact with you to keep us abreast of new technology that will maximise our patient care and I am always impressed by your support for registrar training.
NZSOHNS values your support for our Annual Scientiﬁc Meeting. This year we are making a small, but significant change to the academic timetable. Academic presentations will run for the full three days.
The ASM is the high point of most of the country’s ORLHNS surgeons’ academic year, they look forward to the meeting and its social aspects. The “social calendar” associated with the meeting, has been spread out as part of this change. I hope this optimises your contact with delegates and better acknowledges your support of our Annual Scientific Meeting.
I look forward to welcoming you to Dunedin and to catching up with you during the meeting.
Associate Professor Patrick JD Dawes President, NZSOHNS
