Implementing a New Organization Model to Optimize Patient Care: A Case Study From the University of Miami
Cochlear Americas CEU courses
Presented by Mary Beth O'Sullivan, MS, CCC-A, Meredith Holcomb, AuD, CCC-A, Molly Smeal, AuD, CCC-A, FAAA
Recorded Webinar
Course: #38067Level: Intermediate1 Hour
With expanding indications for implantable hearing solutions, it is important for patients to have timely access to potential treatment solutions. As a result of recent indication changes, The University of Miami Hearing Implant Program implemented new protocols for one group of patients in order to improve the overall experience. As a result, not only did the individual patient experience improve, they documented additional unpredicted benefits that benefitted their entire program. This webinar reviews that study and the observed outcomes.

The Current State of Telehealth for Cochlear Implants: Cochlear™ Remote Care
Cochlear Americas CEU courses
Presented by Amy Donaldson, AuD, CCC-A
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37538Level: Introductory0.5 Hours
Patients with cochlear implants must receive ongoing and consistent care in order to maximize outcomes. However, for some patients access to care may be limited by geography, mobility, or family and work responsibilities. In this course, we will explore how Cochlear’s Remote Care technology is making it possible to provide quality care to patients without a trip into the clinic and we will provide detail on Remote Check, a tool that allows clinicians to monitor patient progress anytime and anywhere.

Bone Conduction Solutions for Hearing Loss Secondary to Chronic Otitis Media: Case Studies for Audiologists
Cochlear Americas CEU courses
Presented by Laurie Mauro, AuD, Lisa Vaughan, AuD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #37417Level: Introductory1 Hour
Chronic Otitis Media (COM) may contribute more than half of the global burden of hearing loss but there is no global consensus on diagnostic and treatment guidelines for hearing loss due to the disease. Research suggests that bone conduction may be an effective and patient-preferred alternative to treating COM-related hearing loss versus hearing aids for many patients, providing consistent and reliable access to sound regardless of the disease cycle. This course will focus on case studies presented by audiologists actively fitting bone conduction solutions.
