Adult Evoked Potentials Masterclass
Dr Guy Lightfoot, Dr Jas Sandhu, Leigh Martin

This one day course in electrophysiological measures focuses on clinical applications for adults, including both routine cases and those with complex needs, and candidates for medico-legal assessment.

The course will provide theoretical and hands-on training in a wide range of audiological and vestibular assessment techniques including VEMPs, ASSRs, Otoneurological ABRs, and Cortical Auditory Evoked Potentials. The content will be suitable as an introduction to adult diagnostics and as a refresher.
