Balancing Everything Out

Meniere's Society report looking at fifteen years of research into dizziness, balance and the pathology of Ménière’s disease.

ENT Aspects of Balance Priority Setting Partnership

In June 2009 a steering group comprising individuals from the British Society for Academic Otolaryngology together with the James Lind Alliance and supported by ENT UK, established an ENT Aspects of Balance “Priority Setting Partnership (PSP)”. The aim of this PSP was to bring clinicians and patients together to identify unanswered questions about the treatment of balance disorders, and then work with the patients and clinicians to prioritise them for research.
