After establishing partnerships with leading European and North American congresses, Audiology Worldnews is launching a new issue in Portuguese for the 17th Congress of the Fundação Otorrinolaringologia (FORL), which will be hosted in Brasilia from August 16 to 18. Every year, this interdisciplinary congress welcomes both ENT specialists and audiologists. In 2017, around 3,500 professionals attended.
This issue* offers an interview with the founder of the FORL, Professor Ricardo Ferreira Bento, and with its Chairman, Doctor Richard Voegels, who is also the Chairman of Congress. Two other articles are dedicated to the FORL. The first shows how the FORL’s Audiology Centre is applying technology to develop a semi-remote patient management system for implanted patients. The second article retraces the history of how the Foundation developed a Temporal Bone Surgery Simulator, the Otobone, the third version of which will be unveiled during the congress.
