Adult Assessments in Hearing Healthcare: Working Across the Continuum, in partnership with American Cochlear Implant Alliance
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Camille Dunn, PhD, Susan Good, AuD, MBA
Live WebinarWed, Mar 1, 2023 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #38417Level: Introductory1 Hour
As the prevalence of hearing loss increases, so does the complexity of the treatment path that patients with hearing loss experience. As hearing health providers, we all have the responsibility to make sure that the patients who can benefit from cochlear implants have access to them. Whether you're screening a patient for a hearing aid, recommending a cochlear implant evaluation, or activating the device, we all have a role to play in the continuum of care for managing hearing loss. This session will focus on the impact of age on hearing health, multidisciplinary approaches to diagnosis, and how providers are successfully incorporating cochlear implants into their diagnostic and treatment process.

The Roles of Audiologists and Dispensers Working with Hearing Aid Users in Cochlear Implant Candidacy, in partnership with American Cochlear Implant Alliance
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Alejandra Ullauri, AuD, MPH
Live WebinarWed, Mar 8, 2023 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #38413Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will review the multiple roles audiologists and hearing aid dispensers play in the continuity of care for hearing aid users—from screening and referring potential cochlear implant candidates to performing comprehensive cochlear implant evaluations prior to referring candidates to cochlear implant surgical teams. Adults with hearing loss live with a chronic condition that requires hearing services for life. Professionals working with them must be able to provide services and guidance to these patients throughout their lifespan. Depending on their licensure and scope of practice, hearing aid dispensers and audiologists can screen, assess, and counsel their own patients regarding cochlear implants as a treatment option.

Utility of the New CI Quality of Life Instruments to Personalize and Improve CI Care, in partnership with American Cochlear Implant Alliance
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Ted McRackan, MD, MSCR
Live WebinarWed, Mar 15, 2023 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #38303Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs), and specifically the Cochlear Implant Quality of Life (CIQOL) instrument suite, can enhance patient care from pre-CI evaluations to post-CI monitoring. A thorough review of these outcomes are discussed in this course.

Adult Perceptions of Hearing Status and Options: Professionals Facilitating a Life-long Hearing Journey, in partnership with American Cochlear Implant Alliance
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Donna L. Sorkin, MA
Live WebinarWed, Mar 22, 2023 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #38407Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Adults with severe-to-profound hearing loss utilizing hearing aids are typically not benefitting sufficiently from traditional amplification and often would benefit from hearing implants. Hearing care professionals can support adult patients who may benefit from implants (either now or in the future) by presenting information on the cochlear implant (CI) option early in an individual’s hearing journey so that a CI is not a last resort but rather a means for those who fall within the guidelines to experience hearing improvement, rather than continued decline.

Optimizing Outcomes in Hearing Technology: Hearing Aids and Implantable Devices, in partnership with American Cochlear Implant Alliance
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Rene Gifford, PhD
Live WebinarWed, Mar 29, 2023 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #38399Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Advances in various hearing technologies have blurred the lines of rehabilitative candidacy for patients with different degrees of measurable hearing. Thus, the purpose of this course provides an overview of auditory outcomes and evidence-based practices for programming, verifying, and validating various hearing technologies including hearing aids and auditory implants.

Guidelines for Determining CI Candidacy, presented in partnership with the ACIA

Considerable variation exists across the medical and audiologic communities regarding determination of cochlear implant (CI) candidacy. While criteria exist from the FDA for children and adults and from CMS for Medicare beneficiaries, different clinics and even audiologists within the same clinic use varying protocols to determine CI candidacy in different age groups and also considering factors other than hearing status. To provide guidance on this topic, the ACI Alliance Board of Directors commissioned four papers to provide guidelines for candidacy for children and adults with bilateral hearing loss and those with single-sided deafness. Task forces were appointed to develop the guidelines with membership drawn from across the care continuum to include audiologists, surgeons, speech-language pathologists, and others involved in CI patient care. This course will review each of those four candidacy guidelines.

Recorded Webinar
Course: #37479Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will introduce participants to the ACI Alliance Guidelines for cochlear implantation in children with single sided deafness (SSD). Instructors will use case studies to guide attendees through highlights of the document including candidacy, evaluation, and programming recommendations.

American Cochlear Implant Alliance Task Force Guidelines for Determining Cochlear Implant Candidacy in Adults with Single-Sided Deafness or Asymmetric Hearing Loss
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Margaret Dillon, AuD, CCC-A, Matthew Carlson, MD, Donna L. Sorkin, MA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37462Level: Intermediate1 Hour
The indications for cochlear implantation have expanded to include patients with single-sided deafness (SSD) and asymmetric hearing loss (AHL). The present course reviews the current evidence and results from a systematic review that were combined to provide guidance for the clinical assessment and management of adults with SSD and AHL. This course is presented by AudiologyOnline in partnership with ACIA.
