Course: #38262Level: Intermediate 0.5 Hours 88 Reviews

With the advent of OTC devices, it is believed that a growing number of people will take ownership of their condition and self-direct their care. Given the gatekeeper status of physicians and other licensed medical personnel, it is imperative they thoroughly understand the consequences of untreated hearing loss as well as the variety of treatment options. This podcast lays the foundation for how hearing care professionals can better educate the medical community about hearing loss and the assortment of device-related options.
