    Abstract

    he inaugural Australian Otitis Media (OMOZ) workshop, Darwin, 25–26 May 2010, was well timed. The workshop — held in the same month that the Australian Senate tabled its report, Hear us: inquiry into hearing health in Australia1 — brought together 70 of Australia’s leading otitis media (OM) researchers. The workshop reinforced that OM is a major concern in Australia, identified important research advances, and highlighted future research areas and strategies for long-term interventions. As emphasised in the Senate report, findings from conferences on hearing health should be made publicly available. The purpose of our report, therefore, is to share the main findings from the OMOZ workshop with the broader community of OM researchers, health care professionals and policy leaders.
