Based on the exceptionally positive feedback from last year’s inaugural event, I am pleased to announce that we will be hosting another Head and Neck meeting this year in conjunction with the university of Dundee. This unique conference will take place via virtual portal ZOOM this September and will focus on the evidence based management of complications in head and neck surgery within a multidisciplinary team approach. It will be the first conference to be based on the principles of an ‘enquiry-led teaching method’ with pre-determined learning objectives.

This event will include didactic lectures, but the majority of the conference will be dedicated to case based panel discussions, creating a unique open forum learning opportunity. It will allow delegates to actively participate in asking questions about the cases and engage in deliberating potential solutions with the panel, consisting of world leading experts in the field. Key note lectures will be delivered by internationally renowned faculty from multiple specialties.

Though the conference will be aimed at a broad audience from trainees in the relevant specialties through to consultants in ENT, Maxillofacial and Plastics; we would also encourage attendance from members of the extended multidisciplinary team for Head and Neck pathology.

Please visit for the programme.

Topics to be covered will include:

Complications in Head and neck surgery- Overview Panel 1. Complications following Surgery of the Salivary Glands/parapharyngeal space Covid surgical outcome- Head and neck perspective Panel 2. Complications following Surgery of the Oral Cavity
