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 focuses 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.
This course is presented by AudiologyOnline in partnership with ACIA.
