From the Editor - A Summer Montage of Customized Reflections on Marketing the iPhone and Unlimited CEUs

A Summer

Hope everyone is staying cool this summer. Things are moving along as usual here at AudiologyOnline, here is the list of our most recent articles.


We have a paper titled, A Montage of Outstanding Questions and Clinical Applications of Otoacoustic Emissions by Drs. Jill Meltzer of the North Shore Audio-Vestibular Lab and Sumitrajit Dhar of Northwestern University. We called it a "a montage" as this sounded better than "a list", but semantics aside, the authors provide a straightforward and useful discussion on OAEs. This paper was produced in cooperation with the Illinois Academy of Audiology and we also have a version as a recorded course (/audiology-ceus/course/otoacoustic-emissions-oaes-theory-practice-presented-in-13099) if you would like to view that as well/instead. Both are eligible for CEUs.

of Customized

Dr. Don Schum of Oticon is back with the current installment of his series on The Human Side of the Fitting Process with the paper titled, Advanced Technology Fittings - Customized Features. Dr. Schum writes how the fine tuning process of fitting advanced hearing aids can interact with features such as adaptation managers and cross-system controls. This paper also has a related recorded session (/audiology-ceus/course/hearing-aids-adults-customizing-advanced-technology-fittings-13915) and both are eligible for CEUs.

Reflections on

Audiologist Stella Ng from The University of Western Ontario rounds out our collection of articles with a paper entitled, An Introduction to Reflective Practice for Audiologists. Many health and social care professions use reflective practice to help navigate the complexities of clinical situations. Many of us have professional "habits" and may find it difficult to change when new information or research comes to light. Ms. Ng discusses how types of reflection can be used to understand these habits and make changes as needed.


If you would like the latest information on strategic marketing and your practice, look no further. Dr. Holly Hosford-Dunn, has two recorded courses on the topic Integrated Marketing Communications (IMC): Strategic Marketing for 21st Century Audiologists, Part I and Part II. Dr. Dunn talks about several marketing communication methods that can be used for retaining and aquiring patients and referral methods, all within the larger context of identifying profiable customer relationships. It is some of the best materials I have seen on these topics. This is an updated version of Dr. Hosford-Dunn's popular 4-part paper on IMC).
