Teleaudiology: Current Practice and Future Trends (PD102909)

Presenter(s): De Wet Swanepoel, PhD
Course Description

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.

This course is a recorded session from the 2022 ASHA Convention Virtual Library (session 2156V). The session was developed by, and presenters were invited by, SIG 7 (Aural Rehabilitation and Its Instrumentation) and SIG 8 (Audiology and Public Health).
