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: 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.
Presenter(s): Victoria A Sanchez, AuD, PhD, CCC-A, F-AAA; Ann Clock Eddins, PhD, MBA, CCC-A, FAAA

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: 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: 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.

Summary: In sensitive compartmented information facility (SCIF) environments, hearing aid features such as Bluetooth and bidirectional microphones—which allow seamless communication between hearing aids and communication devices—are considered security risks. This on demand webinar (available beginning March 16, 2024) will address considerations for hearing aids for patients who work in secure locations as well as share strategies currently being used by providers within the National Capital Region.
Presenter(s): Naomi Grinney, LCSW, IMH-E
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: This on demand conversation features Naomi Grinney, a licensed clinical social worker and infant mental health specialist, who discusses strategies for building parent capacity to support social-emotional skill development for children with both language and social-emotional delays.

Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This on demand webinar discusses evaluation and treatment strategies for adults with self-perceived hearing concerns after a head injury, despite normal (or near normal) audiometric thresholds, with a focus on veterans. The webinar reviews comorbid conditions associated with self-perceived hearing difficulties and how treatment of the comorbidities can improve self-perceived hearing ability. The presenter discusses the current gaps and debates in the literature to highlight questions that need further exploration to provide the best, evidence-based hearing health care.

Credit(s): PDHs: 2.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.2
Summary: Audiologists play a vital role in the evaluation and management of individuals who have experienced a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This on demand webinar discusses the special considerations for testing and managing auditory and vestibular concerns of adult patients with TBI. The speakers discuss comprehensive audiometry, auditory processing, and vestibular testing as well as share strategies for working with adults with TBI and resources you can pass on to your patients.

Summary: What is the audiologist's role in providing care for children and adolescents who have experienced concussion/mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI)? This on demand webinar discusses advanced testing of the central auditory and vestibular pathways for young people with concussion/mTBI as well as those with post-concussion syndrome. Whether you have equipment and are ready to start an mTBI protocol in your clinic or you want to learn more about the nature of the symptoms of mTBI, this course provides the tools to help you assist your pediatric patients.
