Recorded: April 7, 2017
Presenters: Rose DuLude, PhD, CCC-A, FAAA
Duration: 1 hour
Instructional Level: Advanced
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:
- Identify the need to change current dispensing methodology.
- Recognize threats to our relevancy in the hearing healthcare industry.
- Implement patient-centered audiology practices to provide better hearing to more people who need it.
Audiologists provide something nobody wants for a problem no one wants to admit. While our mission is to help patients hear better, we help less than 35% of those with hearing loss. We are ill-prepared to motivate patients to positively change their hearing-related behaviors. We face numerous threats: healthcare consolidation; direct-to-consumer markets; and Washington DC. We must elevate our profession and prove our relevancy. Learn how audiologists using patient-centered audiology can affect positive change and increase treatment rates.
