Infection Control and Prevention in Hearing Healthcare: Don't Wait for an Outbreak
Starkey CEU courses
Presented by Michele Hurley, AuD, FAAA
Live WebinarTue, Jan 25, 2022 at 12:00 pm EST
Course: #37391Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Infection control has long been considered an important issue in hearing healthcare because of the wide range of patients served and the nature of the services provided. Infection control extends beyond the common sense practices of hand washing and good housekeeping. New harmful microbes arise, old microbes reemerge, and as a profession we must remain vigilant and prepared to protect our patients, our practices, and ourselves from the infectious dangers now and next. This course will discuss the principles of infection control, outline standard precautions, and identify strategies to manage patient contact in times of outbreak for a hearing healthcare practice.

Moving Closer to Universal CMV (Cytomegalovirus) Newborn Screening
Natus CEU courses
Presented by Shannon Ross, MD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #33997Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Congenital cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection is the most common congenital infection in newborns and is a leading cause of hearing loss in children. Most infants with congenital CMV are asymptomatic at birth, but at risk for developing hearing impairment. With improved diagnostic testing for congenital CMV and more widespread recognition of the importance of early identification of infants at risk for hearing loss, there is increasing interest to screen all newborn infants for congenital CMV. This presentation will review the epidemiology and outcome of congenital CMV and the testing modalities to screen newborn infants. In addition, the current movement towards more widespread targeted and universal screening for congenital CMV will be discussed.
