BSHAA Webinar – Managing severe to profound hearing loss
Managing severe-profound hearing loss
Individuals with severe-profound hearing loss probably represent a small number of your overall caseload, but arguably they have the most to gain from hearing technology. In this webinar we will explore ways to get the most out of hearing aids and other devices for these clients, reviewing the advice in the Guidelines for Best Practice in the Audiological Management of Adults with Severe and Profound Hearing Loss (published in Seminars in Hearing). We will also discuss cochlear implant candidacy, a critical part of the conversation with every person with severe hearing loss.
