This course is designed to develop the knowledge and skills required for health professionals to safely assess the need for and perform ear wax removal by microsuction.
The course will be taught over 2 days, in small groups of two-three and will cover both the theory and practical aspects of aural care with learning taking place in patient clinics with real patients.
In order to acquire the necessary knowledge and skills for competence in aural care, a minimum of 10 supervised episodes of aural care are required to be performed by the trainee (i.e. 20 ears) before they are allowed to practice unsupervised.
Further episodes of aural care may be performed away from the classroom, under the direct supervision of an experienced aural care practitioner. The activity for each session will be properly recorded in a log book and will be signed by a supervisor.
Training will be provided by an ENT Physician Consultant, 3 Doctors of Audiology, a GP with specialist interest in Aural Medicine and Microsuction and will take place in the Audiology/ENT Department in Charing Cross Hospital.
The course will be delivered by Dr Mohammed Hariri, Dr Fitim Fetahu, Dr Alex Fragoyannis, Dr Mohammed Salam and Dr Mohammed Al-Khateeb.
