Aural Rehabilitation for the Older Adult
MED-EL CEU courses
Presented by Michael Douglas, MA, CCC-SLP
Recorded Webinar
Course: #29689 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Our older adult population, or those age 64 and above, is rising, and are projected to account for 25% of the population by the year 2050. They are healthier than before, more prosperous and better educated. As such their potential to benefit from hearing and speech science services is improved, eliminating age as a determining factor in deciding whether or not a patient is a candidate for hearing aids or cochlear implants. However, even with advances in technology, adults may still have problems with communication and will need to receive aural rehabilitation follow-up services. This course will consider assessment methods and post sensory management services aimed to alleviate the activity limitations and participation restrictions of the older adult with hearing loss.

Hearing Implants and MRI Compatibility
MED-EL CEU courses
Presented by Darla Franz
Recorded Webinar
Course: #29509 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
As MRI usage continues to increase in health systems around the world, the impact of having an implantable hearing device with an internal magnet has become a key issue in the long-term care plan for recipients and the clinics who serve them. This session will discuss unique design innovations that significantly reduce the potential for magnetic forces to interact negatively with the internal magnet, the impact this has on the counseling and device selection process, and how hearing implant recipients can now obtain state-of-the-art 3.0 Tesla MRI scans without removal of the internal magnet and with significantly reduced risk of pain or discomfort during scanning.
