Cochlear are excited to announce the launch of a series of free educational 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.

Cochlear implant candidacy evaluation- what is involved for my patient? – Thursday 18th June, 1300 BST

What happens to patients when they are referred for cochlear implant assessments?  How can you counsel them as they set off? In this engaging session, you will go behind the scenes into the journey of a patient being referred and assessed for potential implantation. Included will be a description of the overall evaluation process, common testing protocols and the experience of switch on.

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.
