Cochlear are excited to announce the launch of a series of free education webinars on hearing implants. These webinars are ideal for you and your department to stay current in your learning during this time.
The webinars will focus on the patient journey and are aimed at audiologists/ENT/other hearing health professionals who do not work directly with hearing implants. However, anyone and everyone is welcome! Our presenters will focus on a variety of topics relevant to hearing implant candidacy and criteria, patient counselling and how to refer for an assessment. There will be a recorded section followed by a live Q&A session.
Candidacy for hearing implants on Wednesday 27th May, 1300 BST
This webinar will introduce you to Cochlear’s Engagement team, the Cochlear Peer Network and support we can provide to you and your clinic/department. It will also give an overview of cochlear implants and Baha with a focus on candidacy criteria. Case studies will be used to integrate the learnings.
Email us at UKLearnNow@cochlear.com for more information.
Don’t forget to register – even if you miss the live session you will be able to catch up with the recorded session at a later date.
