Oticon Redefines Child-friendly Hearing Care
Oticon CEU courses
Presented by Candace Depp, AuD
Live WebinarFri, Apr 12, 2019 at 11:00 am EDT
Course: #32865 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Children live, learn, and interact in exceptionally diverse listening environments, and the differing characteristics of each make all of them uniquely challenging. Being able to make sense of sound is crucial to children’s development and growth. Oticon introduces a whole new way for children to hear sounds and thereby increases speech understanding in noise. This promotes better conditions to meet developmental needs and the day-to-day challenges of growing up. In this session, we discuss the advancements that bring the highest level of patient benefit to all parts of the pediatric segment to optimize listening and learning opportunities. Product practicalities and the latest research will also be reviewed.

Bone Conduction Hearing Device Fitting Practices in Pediatrics
Oticon CEU courses
Presented by Dave Gordey
Recorded Webinar
Course: #32610 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
For children who are not candidates for air conduction hearing aids, bone conduction hearing devices are available. Unfortunately, fitting protocols are not well developed for these devices. This is challenging for pediatric audiologists who rely on objective measures of hearing devices to support their patient’s communication development. Bone conduction hearing devices and candidacy considerations for the pediatric population will be reviewed. Findings from a clinical survey will be offered to inform the current practices for fitting these devices in children.

Solutions That Work Where Children Learn and Play

At Oticon, we have a specific focus on developing technologies and intervention approaches that support the broad range of cognitive development in the child. This session will review the latest solutions designed to support children in both social and educational settings and discuss the latest research documenting the benefits of Oticon Opn for pediatric use.

Social Isolation in the Older Adult
Oticon CEU courses
Presented by Don Schum, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #32315 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
As age-related hearing loss is often part of a broader list of body change that the older adult experiences. Typical reaction patterns can lead the person down the path of isolation (either consciously or subconsciously), putting the patient at further health and cognitive risk.

Hearing Loss, Aging & Speech Understanding
Oticon CEU courses
Presented by Don Schum, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #32314 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Effective speech understanding, especially in complex environments, requires both a well-functioning auditory system and a cognitive system that can efficiently and accurately process information, but our older patients can be challenged on both fronts. In this seminar, the cognitive nature of speech understanding will be viewed in light of the extra pressure that is exerted when hearing loss corrupts the information that is passed along from the periphery.

When Season 1 came to an end, we were left with the concern that the human brain was facing a great danger – and that danger was coming from adults who choose to ignore or delay doing something about their emerging hearing loss. In Season 2, we will examine the factors at play when adults first recognize and then respond to changes in their ability to hear effectively. Understanding the low penetration rate of hearing aids in the adult population starts with an understanding of how people respond to age-related health changes in general.

Episode 1: The Reaction to Aging: Hearing Loss is just one of many potential body changes that occur as adults get older. There are different ways in which a person can react to these changes and understanding the range of reactions is step 1 in being able to help the patient make a positive decision to address their hearing loss.

Episode 2: The Imagery of Hearing Aids: Aging can draw our powerful emotions in the adult. A few years back, we engaged a research group that used a groundbreaking approach to help us better understand what hearing aids mean to the person considering their use.

Episode 3: The Interpersonal Cost of Delay: The true effect of hearing loss is not about where a person cannot hear -- it is about who they cannot hear. Hearing loss is a disruptor of relationships, but perhaps this distancing between the patient and friends or family can be exactly the path to a constructive response by the patient.

Episode 4: The Cognitive Cost of Delay: Emerging evidence over the past several years has shown us that the cost of ignoring hearing loss may be more serious than we used to think. The natural withdrawal from social & family interactions may have serious implications for the long-term cognitive health of older adults.

Episode 5: Changing the Conversation: What does it take to help a patient move towards making a positive decision about addressing their hearing difficulties? It starts with an honest examination of what is really important to them and then continues with developing a plan to move in that direction.

Episode 6: Readiness for Amplification: Once a patient agrees to try amplification, it is crucial that they are prepared for the most positive experience possible. We have some ideas about what it takes to make a patient truly ready to enter the hearing aid world.

Episode 7: Getting the Most Out of the COSI: The COSI was a great step forward in the subjective assessment of the effect of amplification. But there may be more value to this important tool than you may realize.

Episode 8: A Good Fitting versus A Good Fitting Session: In the long run, the goals of a hearing aid fitting are audiological: the most effective compensation for the impairment as possible. But the immediate experiences of the patient can set the tone – either positively or negatively – and getting the patient started the right way may involve more factors than just audiological considerations.

Episode 9: The First 30 Days: The 30-day trial is standard in the hearing aid world, but do we really know what the patient experiences during that first month? We have dug into the issue and we have some interesting observations to share.

Episode 10: Adapting to the New Identity: We wrap up Season 2 by looking forward for the patient – to examine what it will take for the patient to become not just a lifelong user, but even a lifelong advocate for amplification.

Knowledge and Implementation in Pediatric Audiology (KiPA): Exploring Gaps in Practice
Oticon CEU courses
Presented by Dave Gordey, Sheila Moodie, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #32117 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
KiPA was developed by Oticon to bring together pediatric audiology researchers and clinicians to discuss, define and understand gaps in clinical pediatric audiology practice and make suggestions for implementing best practice that is evidence-based, when working with children. This presentation will review the concept of best and evidence-based practice and its application to KiPA project work that includes pediatric hearing aid fitting practices and bimodal device fittings in children.

What's New in Government Services from Oticon
