  • Live - Efficient, Effective Counseling: How to Put You and Your Patients on the Same Page (.1 CEUs)

    Includes a Live Event on 06/08/2016 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

    Presented by Brian Urban, AuD

    Efficient, Effective Counseling: How to Put You and Your Patients on the Same Page

    Wednesday, June 8, 2016; 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

    Presenter: Brian Urban, AuD

    CEUs: .1

    Duration: 1 hour

    Who Should Attend: Audiologists, Audiology Assistants, Patient Care Coordinators, Students

    Instructional Level: Intermediate
    Program Focus: Knowledge and Skills

    Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

    1. Describe the percentage of information that is accurately remembered during a typical healthcare visit.
    2. Describe the Primacy and Recency Effects
    3. Demonstrate 2 simple techniques for enhancing patient recall and compliance.
    Description: Providing exceptional diagnostic and (re)habiliative services is the cornerstone of any audiologic practice. Unfortunately, while well-intentioned audiologists may deliver exhaustive informational counseling detailing all aspects of the results, recommendations, and amplification options, little attention is paid to helping the patient retain important information. Often, a disconnect exists whereby the audiologist feels confident that effective counseling was delivered despite the fact that the patient and their family/caregivers remain poorly informed. Margolis (2004) clearly displayed that in a typical counseling session patients recall only approximately 25% of information correctly. Margolis (2004) continued that approximately 25% of the information is remembered incorrectly and 50% is forgotten completely. These observations were found to be independent of the severity of the diagnosis as well as the patient's level of education. Too often, a lack of understanding regarding effective counseling techniques results in poor patient recall and compliance. These practices inevitably lead to patient dissatisfaction and can hinder optimal treatment outcomes. As a doctorate level profession, audiologists must move beyond verbal-only, didactic counseling, and embrace a more comprehensive approach that addresses each patient's individual hearing healthcare needs.

    Therefore, this eAudiology Web seminar will specifically review topics related to patient counseling including: the primacy and recency effects, factors that affect recall, methods for presentation and categorization of information. The session will also promote audience participation by including multiple interactive activities as well as by soliciting questions, suggestions, and sharing of participants' personal experiences. In essence, the participants will be challenged to assess their own abilities and encouraged to develop techniques to enhance patient recall and compliance: putting themselves and their patients on the same page.

  • Live - Audiologist's Role in Referral to Early Intervention

    Includes a Live Event on 07/27/2016 at 10:15 AM (EDT)

    Presented by Alison M. Grimes, AuD and Christine Yoshinaga-Itano PhD

    Audiologist's Role in Referral to Early Intervention

    Wednesday, July 27, 2016; 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET

    Presenter: Presented by Alison M. Grimes, AuD and Christine Yoshinaga-Itano, PhD

    CEUs: .1

    Duration: 1 hour

    Who Should Attend: Pediatric Audiologists, Educational Audiologists, audiologists working in any center that diagnoses children in young children, community clinics

    Instructional Level: Intermediate
    Program Focus: Knowledge

    Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:

    1.Define early intervention services

    2.Describe why a referral should be made and how to make the referral

    3.Describe the benefit to the child and the family for a seamless transition from diagnosis to early intervention enrollment.

    Description: This presentation will provide a definition of early intervention services and the professional responsibility of the diagnosing audiologist to assure that families are not only referred to early intervention but also enroll. Research data from 10 states about the role of identification by 3 months and enrollment into early intervention by 6 months on the language developmental outcomes of children who are deaf or hard of hearing will be described. State by state variability in the provision of early intervention services will be characterized into several models: 1) a deafness/hearing-specific publicly provided early intervention program, 2) early intervention programs that are deafness/hearing specific that are both publicly and privately provided, 3) early intervention programs that are non-categorical (non-specific to deafness and hearing loss) that are publicly provided, 4) hybrid programs. Information about different methods of making a referral to early intervention, tracking whether or not the families enrolled into an early intervention program, and reporting enrollment
