Summary: Older adults must make important decisions about their end-of-life care, and those with hearing and other communication disorders need special accommodations to participate in these important decisions to the fullest extent possible. This session discusses the communication needs of patients in the final stages of life, including the use of various hearing technologies, such as hearing aids, personal sound amplifiers, and pocket talkers. The presenters discuss tools to facilitate conversations among patients, family members, and caregivers.

Summary: It is incumbent upon each member of a patient's health care team to play a role in ensuring a safer medication use experience based on basic principles regarding polypharmacy. This session uses case studies to explore polypharmacy and synergistic effects to help audiologists contribute to positive overall medication results for their patients.

Summary: The field of audiology focuses mostly on the peripheral auditory system-in both diagnosis and management-but other factors (e.g., "hidden hearing loss" and/or reduced cognitive ability) may play a role in an individual's ability to communicate in diverse environments. This session discusses how audiologists can incorporate evoked potential testing into the assessment battery to obtain a more comprehensive picture of auditory function.

Summary: Emerging treatment approaches for age-related hearing loss include alternative interventions aimed at ameliorating symptoms and slowing down or even preventing hearing loss, in contrast with current treatment approaches, which focus primarily on amplification and communication strategies. This session will explore up-and-coming approaches, such as pre-clinical investigation of hormones (e.g., Aldosterone) correlated with auditory function; medicinal-related interventions; and challenges to timelines to bring new treatments to market.

Summary: Audiologists, speech-language pathologists, and assistants strive to provide client-centered, evidence-based care, but they may have questions: What is considered evidence-based practice (EBP)? How do I make an evidence-based clinical decision? Are there tools for simplifying the EBP process? This course illuminates EBP concepts and guides you through clinical scenario activities while highlighting free, time-saving ASHA EBP resources and tools, such as ASHA's EBP Toolkit. Learn new strategies and bolster your evidence-based decision-making skills.

Summary: Teleaudiology is demonstrating potential to make hearing care more accessible and affordable. The COVID-19 pandemic further highlighted digital solutions for remote care not as a convenience but as an essential tool for safe health access. This course reviews basic concepts underlying teleaudiology and explores current trends and future directions in this rapidly changing space. A range of new trends in digital audiology, including novel technologies and service-delivery models, are explored with consideration of future directions.

Summary: Published research indicates that outcomes in children with hearing loss are generally lower than their hearing counterparts. Given the cascading effects auditory deprivation and language delays may cause in children, providing differential diagnoses can present a challenge. This course identifies commonly occurring comorbid presentations in children with hearing loss and describes the process of making differential diagnoses.

Summary: Are you curious about opening or growing a private practice that goes beyond hearing aid sales and service? How do you develop a knowledge base on practice management topics rarely covered in our specialized graduate education? This live webinar (September 4, 2024, 1–2 p.m. ET) will explore a range of considerations for audiology private practice, including tips for business management and administration, working with insurance companies, considerations for staffing, and planning for growth.

Summary: Medical professionals who use hearing aids can face challenges when they need to perform auscultation (listening to sounds from various organs, most often with a stethoscope) as part of their job. While the options may not seem straightforward, audiologists can play a key role in helping these medical professionals find an amplified stethoscope solution. This on demand webinar (available beginning March 21, 2024) will discuss key considerations, potential options, and practical steps for helping medical professionals with hearing loss obtain the best solution.
