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.

Summary: Infection prevention and control is always important in the audiology clinic, but COVID-19 has brought unique challenges to the forefront of audiologists’ practice. This on demand webinar offers a basic overview of standard precautions while focusing on infection-related precautions that are of particular importance to audiologists.

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.

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: The global COVID-19 pandemic has introduced a level of disruption into our personal and professional lives that was previously unimaginable. How we respond will be a deciding factor for the future success of our practices. This session will explore how to embrace change and use this unique opportunity to rethink how we provide and promote our services. The speaker will discuss specific ways audiologists who operate private practices can clearly articulate their distinctive role in the hearing health marketplace and be prepared for future interruptions such as pandemics, big box stores, online retailers, and personal indecision.
