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.
