Performing real-ear measures is a clinical win - win - win. It ensures patient audibility and therefore success with amplification. It aids confidence in the provider that they are delivering the highest standard of care. And it creates value for the practice by delivering clinical efficiency through the decreased need for adjustment appointments. During this course, we will discuss the setup of the real-ear equipment in a real office environment, how to structure patient appointments for measuring patient outcomes, integrating real-ear measures with hearing aid adjustments, and what to look for in hearing aid fitting. The goal of this course is to not only deliver efficient solutions that you can integrate into your office today, but also expand your thinking about ways to use real-ear in your clinical practice.
