Summary: The COVID-19 pandemic has turned our personal and professional worlds upside down. Yet, something positive can come from this pandemic if we see this challenge as an opportunity to re-examine what and how we practice. The speaker explores how audiologists can redesign what we do by going back to basics while expanding our practices in new and innovative ways, including embracing new technology (e.g., tablet audiometry, OTCs, and virtual visits) and using new fitting models for hearing aids or implants.
Presenter(s): Cherilee Rutherford, AuD
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: This session will explore the Calgary-Cambridge Guides and the Four Habits framework to support audiologists in applying person-centered care and communication skills through the different phases of an audiology appointment. The session will discuss active reflection activities, person-centered principles, and practical ways to enhance hearing care.
Presenter(s): Anna Marie Jilla, AuD, PhD; Carole E. Johnson, PhD, AuD, CCC-A
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Affordability of and willingness to pay for amplification devices and hearing health services can be difficult topics to discuss with patients. The session will present an evidence-based, pragmatic approach for addressing affordability issues with patients and leveraging market knowledge, insurance coverage, and community resources to increase accessibility to hearing health care.
Presenter(s): James Henry, PhD, CCC-A
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.15
Summary: This session will describe evidence-based strategies for tinnitus assessment and management. The speaker will discuss specific tools and processes to help audiologists provide the best services to manage tinnitus along with hearing loss or reduced sound tolerance (hyperacusis), since many individuals who experience tinnitus also experience these other challenges.
Presenter(s): Dave Fabry, PhD
Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: There is no question that emerging technologies such as embedded sensors and artificial intelligence are changing the hearing health landscape. This session will look ahead to the coming decade and explore innovations in hearing health care technology, strategy, and service. The speaker will discuss practical ways to leverage these innovations to be successful in today’s and tomorrow’s dynamic market landscape.
Presenter(s): Debbie Abel, AuD
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: This session will discuss considerations and share tools to help you navigate the evolving audiology coding and reimbursement landscape, including new technologies, third-party administrators, itemization, over-the-counter hearing aids, and the provision of services via telehealth.
Presenter(s): Harvey B. Abrams, PhD
Credit(s): PDHs: 1.0, ASHA CEUs*: 0.1
Summary: Prior to 2020, a remote model of hearing health care had been applied primarily to remote populations and/or limited to hearing screening and counseling services. Now, in the face of a global pandemic that makes face-to-face services risky, there has been an urgent demand for more information about teleaudiology. This session will review the evolution of teleaudiology, including provider and patient attitudes concerning the perceived benefits, disadvantages, and outcomes associated with remote audiologic care. The speaker will describe an existing, commercial, patient-centered teleaudiology model of hearing health care that is designed to increase accessibility and reduce cost while maintaining the audiologist’s central role as a critical component of care throughout the patient journey.

Summary: While telepractice and tele-AAC services are often thought of as real-time services provided directly to an individual, asynchronous tele-AAC services that include highly individualized and clinically relevant content can be quite effective also. This course explores tele-AAC services as a continuum of support, highlighting the dynamic role of asynchronous tele-AAC in supporting not only the individual (with implementation and generalization, in particular) but also essential stakeholders, including communication partners. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 18: Telepractice.

Summary: This course explores factors that diminish the cognitive capacity of communication sciences and disorders (CSD) students, including poverty, racism, and discrimination based on socially marginalized identities, including disability. The COVID-19 pandemic and social unrest have created a daily reality of uncertainty, taking up a lot of bandwidth. Although these issues affect everyone in some way, they impact marginalized groups with greater severity. In this course, the speakers share ideas for the classroom and clinical environments to provide instructors and clinical supervisors with practical strategies to help students recover the bandwidth they need to learn and thrive. Speakers discuss the clinical implications of welcoming a diverse group of students into CSD programs and ways to support them. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 10: Issues in Higher Education.

Summary: While remote service delivery has been around for several years, eAudiology (also known as teleaudiology) is becoming a daily reality for many audiologists, in large part due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This course discusses how eAudiology addresses the need for improving patient experience, providing innovative services, and increasing clinic efficiency. The speakers highlight how the recent advances in hearing aid remote programming fit with eAudiology, strategies for introducing eAudiology services to patients who can benefit from them, and how to best utilize eAudiology during and post-pandemic. This course – part of the SIGnature Series – was developed by SIG 8: Audiology and Public Health.
