The Russell Strong Auditorium, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Ipswich Road, Woolloongabba

Fifth biennial queensland neuroma conference

Acoustic Neuroma (Vestibular Schwannoma) is a Schwann cell derived tumour arising from the Eighth cranial nerve (hearing and balance nerve), found in the Cerebello-Pontine Angle (CPA) and skull base region. Because of its location and the nature, its management requires a multidisciplinary team effort with dedicated clinicians.

The Fifth Biennial Queensland Acoustic Neuroma Conference is organised jointly by The Queensland Skull Base Unit, Queensland Acoustic Neuroma Association and Audiology Australia (Queensland Branch). It is a unique event in Australia as it brings together clinicians and patients in a joint forum.

The 2014 Conference will feature the keynote Speaker - Dr Peter McNeill from St Vincent’s Hospital, Melbourne. In addition, Surgeons (ENT and Neurosurgery), Physicians, Radiologists, Medical and Radiation Oncologists and Allied Health specialists (Audiologist, Physiotherapist and Speech Pathologist) will present a showcase of the activities from the Princess Alexandra and Mater Hospitals. A popular feature of the program will again be patient-to-patient support with two personal experience presentations.
