Cochlear implant candidacy continues to evolve as we learn more about patient needs, and as technology advances. This presentation will address considerations for pediatric implant recipients, utilizing several case study examples. Cases will include those who may not be considered traditional implant candidates as well as those with a variety of special needs. Presenters will discuss the hurdles and possible solutions with each case. This course is presented in partnership with Cincinnati Children's.
A clinically feasible and effective protocol for infant hearing assessment with ABR is described. Research findings support all recommended stimulus and acquisition parameters. This course is open captioned.
Noise exposures represent an important but under-recognized cause of disease and disability in America. This webinar will discuss trends in occupational and community noise exposures in America, highlight emerging health effects associated with occupational and community noise exposures. Available resources related to hearing loss prevention and noise exposure reduction will be provided.
Due to changes in birth rates and increased longevity, there are increasing numbers of people with age-associated conditions like dementia. This article is an engaging Q & A with neuropsychologist Dr. Piers Dawes regarding the relationship between hearing loss, dementia, and cognition, with implications for audiology clinical practice.

This webinar utilizes ethical situations/scenarios to provide audiologists with a step-by-step methodology for recognizing and resolving problems with unethical behavior. By examining the legal, ethical, and moral constraints for each potential ethical violation, audiologists examine conflicts between individuals and/or institutions to determine appropriate sanctions and resolution of the problem.

This course will present the benefits of hearing preservation in adult cochlear implant patients using a standard length cochlear implant electrode array. The presenter will discuss his experience using standard length cochlear implant electrodes for hearing preservation as well as other centers’ experience. Research regarding future implications of hearing preservation in cochlear implantation will be reviewed.
Verification using real ear measures (REM) is an important tool for successful use of amplification. Verification plays a critical role to ensure that audibility of maintained. REM is advocated as part of Best Practice Guidelines by AAA and ASHA, yet the majority of fittings are not completed using REM.
This presentation will discuss data on using acoustic and electric stimulation to suppress chronic tinnitus, and will suggest treatment strategies. This course is presented in partnership with American Auditory Society.
This course will explain the rationale for creation of a Family Advisory Council. The benefits of a Family Advisory Council to audiology staff and patients will also be illustrated. This course is presented in partnership with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center.
This webinar will introduce the cortical auditory evoked potential (CAEP) and describe the use of the N1-P2 response complex as an objective predictor of hearing threshold in adults and older children. In addition, the difference between CAEPs from normal-hearing and hearing-impaired adults, and the effects of stimulus signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) and audibility on the CAEP amplitude in a population with hearing loss will be discussed. This webinar is presented in partnership with Seminars in Hearing.
Audiology telehealth is an expanding way to enhance access to audiology care. This presentation will review the history of audiology telehealth, and describe the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center audiology telehealth program and its plan for the future.
This article discusses the importance of a comprehensive management program for patients with significant tinnitus distress. It describes the results of a 12 month study of such a program, and analyzes the relative contributions of the various components of the program.

Patients with SSD (Single Sided Deafness) can be rehabilitated with conventional CROS or Bi-CROS systems (contralateral routing of signal), bone anchored hearing systems or with a cochlear implant (CI). The indications and results of the different treatments are presented. While the decision for CI surgery in children with acquired SSD is relatively easy due to the good results in adults, CI in children with congenital SSD has been discussed controversially. This course is presented in partnership with American Auditory Society.
This course, written in an engaging Q & A format, discusses how providing audiologic rehabilitation services can contribute to better outcomes and help audiologists differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive hearing care market.
