Summary: The provision of comprehensive auditory rehabilitation services is critical to successful patient outcomes, yet many audiologists focus primarily or exclusively on amplification due to time, reimbursement, and compliance challenges. This session will clearly define the components of auditory rehabilitation and provide specific strategies and tools to help overcome challenges.

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.

Credit(s): PDHs: 0.5, ASHA CEUs*: 0.05
Summary: It is unclear how over-the-counter hearing devices will impact our patients and our practices in the coming years. This session will discuss practical strategies for incorporating OTC devices, deciding when to offer alternative rehabilitation options to patients, and offering a wider variety of solutions to meet our patients’ needs.

Summary: This session will examine the diagnosis and treatment of persistent postural-perceptual dizziness (PPPD). The session will explore the recently defined criteria for the presentation and symptoms of the disorder as well as describe current and emerging research that is helping clinicians and researchers better understand it. The speaker will also discuss how chronic co-morbid disorders such as migraine and Meniere’s disease should be factored into the treatment of this disorder.

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.
