The Art of Reflection in Audiology: Using the Ida Institute Reflective Journal in your daily practice
Oticon CEU courses
Presented by Natalie Comas, BSpPath, LSLS Cert. AVT ®, AG Bell Academy
Recorded Webinar
Course: #36635Level: Introductory1 Hour
How can reflective practices help hearing care providers become mindful of the gap between the intention clinicians have to make appointments person-centered, and the reality of implementing person-centered care in daily clinical practice? What are the benefits of setting aside time to reflect? In this session, we will introduce self-development tools for analysis and reflective practice, including ethnographic videos and the Reflective Journal, which will help clinicians to understand their patients’ needs and preferences, as well as their own professional development needs, to improve the outcomes of appointments.

The Oticon Podcast Program - The Audiology of Oticon More (Season Nine)
Oticon CEU courses
Presented by Don Schum, PhD
Course: #36352Level: Intermediate1.5 Hour
No CEUs/Hours Offered
Oticon’s mission is to continue to push the envelope and create life-changing technology. Oticon More represents our next major leap forward at creating a new solution for persons with hearing loss. More introduces a variety of ground-breaking approaches that have yet to be seen in hearing aids, most significantly the inclusions of a Deep Neural Network on-board each and every product.

Episode 1: The Origin of Oticon More
With the release of Opn in 2016 and then OpnS in 2019, we demonstrated that we could improve the patient’s ability to communicate effectively in complex listening situations without having to create an artificial, restricted listening experience. With More, we wanted to show that we could take the next major leap in technology development.

Episode 2: Embracing a New Approach to Signal Processing
Deep Learning has been transformational in other areas of business and healthcare. Problems that were particularly vexing were able to be solved in a new and more effective manner. We have adopted Deep Learning in More for the same reason – to allow us to take the next the next step in solving the number one problem faced by patients with hearing loss.

Episode 3: Implementing Deep Learning in More
Artificial Intelligence (AI) in various forms is starting to make its way into the hearing aid world. With More, we are incorporating the most sophisticated version of AI – Deep Learning. It is our new processor for speech in noise situations. And it provides a more nuanced and multi-dimensional treatment of all sounds in the listening environment.

Episode 4: The Patient in a 3-D World
We live in a world that is rich in sounds. And our goal is to provide the patient with a full perspective of the sound scene, but in a way that allows for improved, less-effortful performance. Our Virtual Outer Ear and Sound Rebalancer approaches are designed to be the first step in creating this full, but properly prioritized sound scene.

Episode 5: How Much Sound Does the Patient Want?
When directional and noise reduction systems are active, they take some amount of signal loudness out of the response of the hearing aid. With the speed and processing power of the Polaris platform, we are now able to build a certain amount of that lost loudness back into the response of the hearing aid in the mid and high frequencies using a new feature called the Sound Enhancer. We expect that different patients will want more or less of this recovered signal in the response of the device.

Episode 6: Protecting the Speech Signal
With Speech Guard, we demonstrated how important it was to properly control the dynamic response of a nonlinear processing system in a hearing aid without having to accept the inherent limitations of either fast or slow processing. We have now expanded on this concept with the development of MoreSound Amplifier by including adaptive adjustments of the resolution of the processing in order to maximally protect the integrity of the speech signal.

Episode 7: Protecting Gain
With the release of OpnS in 2019, we introduced an absolute unique approach to identifying and eliminating feedback. With the release of More, we have improved upon that concept with the development of MoreSound Optimizer – a system designed to protect gain in the important higher frequencies.

Episode 8: Oticon More & the Cognitive System
Our Brain Hearing approach to developing solutions has always placed a premium on providing the brain the very best information possible. The most current research into the cognitive system has emphasized the ability to take in a full sound scene and then decide which parts on which to focus and which parts to suppress. And with More, we designed a system specifically to provide that full yet rebalanced sound scene to the patient.

Episode 9: Patient Performance with More
As always when we develop new solutions, we carefully evaluate performance to ensure that we have improved upon our previous generation of technology. With the release of More, we have carefully measured patient performance and, once again, we have documented evidence of improved speech understanding performance with reduced effort. And these dimensions are the hallmark of our Brain Hearing approach.

Episode 10: The Big Picture
We are in an era where a variety of disruptive approaches to hearing care are becoming part of our world. And while these alternative approaches have merit, at Oticon, we have maintained a solid focus on the first and most important thing that we can do for patients: create solutions to improve their lives, especially in their most challenging environments.
