Implantable hearing technologies
are mainstream audiological practice that have changed the ways that audiologists deliver services.  No longer are there no alternative technological solutions when conventional hearing aids do not provide assistance.     But, implantable hearing technologies require a team of audiologists, surgeons, psychologists, counsellors, speech pathologists, families and others to ensure optimal benefit.    Complex decision making, timing and working in teams is essential for effective outcomes.

  • How has the option of implantable technology changed audiology practice?
  • What can we learn from implant programmes that can apply to all audiological rehabilitation?
  • What practical skills are needed to incorporate implantable technologies into independent audiological practice?
  • What do recipients of implantable hearing technology and their families want from rehabilitation programmes?

Join IAA for an in-depth two day seminar that will address all these questions and more.
