Guidelines for Determining CI Candidacy, presented in partnership with the ACIA
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Sandra Prentiss, PhD, CCC-A, Daniel Zeitler, MD, FACS, Donna L. Sorkin, MA, Andrea Warner-Czyz, PhD, Margaret Dillon, AuD, CCC-A, Matthew Carlson, MD, Lisa Park, AuD, CCC-A, Nancy Young, MD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37498Level: Intermediate4 Hours
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.

An Update on Clinical Protocols: The Quebec Experience
Signia CEU courses
Presented by Brian Taylor, AuD, Mathieu Hotton, PhD
Audio
Course: #37117Level: Intermediate0.5 Hours
Most audiologists would agree the professional landscape is changing. Over-the-counter and self-fitting hearing aids are on the horizon, reimbursement options, including the possibility Medicare will pay for hearing aids is looming in Washington DC, and telecare is fast becoming a routine part of clinical practice.
This changing landscape is spurring renewed interest in clinical standards, guidelines, and protocols. For example, the Audiology Practice Standards Organization (APSO) recently published clinical standards for fitting adults with hearing aids (see, https://www.audiologyonline.com/articles/20q-new-hearing-aid-fitting-27938). While standards tell us “what” we should be doing in the clinic to optimize patient outcomes, guidelines and protocols tell us “how” to conduct those best-practice standards.
In this Signia podcast, Brian Taylor discusses the Québec Audiological Assessment Protocol with its co-creator, Mathieu Hotton, associate professor of Audiology at Laval University in Quebec Canada. In this podcast, Mathieu and Brian discuss the origins of the QAAP, and how to implement many parts of it in clinical practice.
After listening to the podcast for additional information on the QAAP, you can contact Professor Hotton at mathieu.hotton@fmed.ulaval.ca.
