Audiology Public Health: Navigating the Complexities of Ototoxicity Management (PD102391)

Presenter(s): Gayla L. Poling, PhD, CCC-A
Course Description


Hundreds of medications commonly prescribed for anticancer treatments and some infections are known to cause auditory and/or vestibular dysfunction, known as ototoxicity. This course discusses early detection of ototoxicity through increased awareness, leveraging current tools, and clinical practice approaches for serial monitoring, all of which can provide care teams opportunities to identify adverse effects, modify treatment plans to mitigate hearing loss, and utilize individualized interventions. The speaker discusses strategies for preventing or minimizing cochlear damage to preserve quality of life for patients receiving treatment and to reduce the societal burden of hearing loss.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • Describe the complexity of ototoxicity management in clinical practice
  • Create a framework for navigating ototoxicity management in clinical practice
  • Identify current solutions to detecting and monitoring ototoxicity across the life span

Course Reviews

"Good foundation information that will allow this presentation to be useful to both audiologists and speech pathologists that might have patients receiving an ototoxic medication and/or treatment."
