Goals and learning objectives

This module will help you understand common disorders of the outer and middle ear. It runs through the features of each condition, the management options and possible complications if the problem is left unchecked and continues to worsen. After reading this module, you will be better equipped to counsel patients who present a prescription, ask for an OTC recommendation or seek advice for any of these problems.
