CEU workshops offer practical tools and hands-on training focused on delivering improved patient outcomes with modern amplification devices.
Dorchester, Canada – February 2016. Audioscan has today announced its latest set of CEU workshops for 2016 focusing on modern hearing instrument verification that provide tools and techniques for delivering improved patient outcomes in an evolving hearing healthcare industry.
The course will provide attendees with exposure to the Audioscan Verifit®2, a fully binaural multifunctional objective verification system that can be used to guide the hearing instrument fitting process. Users of existing Audioscan systems or other verification products should also find this course particularly relevant. Through a combination of presentation techniques and hands-on opportunities, attendees with learn how to fit and verify various modern hearing instrument technologies using best practice procedures, and develop strategies to effectively address common patient issues associated with the use of amplification.
The CEU workshop schedule for 2016 features dates throughout the continental US and Canada. The workshops will be conducted by well-known industry professionals and Audioscan educators: Dave Smriga, M.A., Senior Audiology Consultant for Audioscan and John Pumford, Au.D., Director of Audiology and Education for Audioscan.
John Pumford stated, “When developing this year’s course content, the education team sought to highlight the important role that real-ear measurement and test box verification procedures have to play in delivering beneficial patient outcomes. The principles and techniques demonstrated in the workshops can be used by fitting professionals to illustrate their significant value in delivering effective hearing health care – aspects that are particularly relevant given the recent PCAST recommendations and the ever expanding presence of non-traditional amplification devices such as PSAPs and Hearables. We look forward to sharing tools and techniques that can help attendees improve patient outcomes and their own clinical success in an evolving hearing healthcare industry.”
Through its AAA and IHS approved CEU workshops, Audioscan has provided valuable education to thousands of fitting professionals over the last 16+ years. Specific Audioscan workshop locations and their associated dates can be found at: www.audioscan.com/workshops
