ENT: A multidisciplinary approach to...

A webinar series for ENT trainees, SAS and consultants brought to you by The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in association with ENT UK. The premise behind this series is to provide clinicians with an understanding of their roles and that of other disciplines in the treatment of common ENT diseases. Each session will feature two speakers i.e. an ENT Surgeon and a colleague from an affiliated medical/surgical specialty. The hope is that by utilizing a cohesive approach, we will limit adverse events, improve patient outcomes, decrease patient length of stay, reduce costs and increase both patient and job satisfaction.
