The first in the series, which took place on 2nd June, covered Direct2U Upgrades and will soon be available to view on the MED-EL Academy. The rest of the series will look at treatment options as well as planning for efficiencies in patient pathways. We will discuss and consider what MED-EL can offer to support telehealth, distanced appointments, and manage waiting times.

To register for any of the below webinars simply email clinicalsupport@medel.co.uk with the name of the webinar, and you will be sent a link to join. All webinars will be hosted on Microsoft Teams and will be available on the MED-EL Academy following the live date*.


The ADHEAR System – An Option for Treating OME/Glue Ear

When: Wed 10th June 12.00-12.45 BST

Hosted by: Chris Durst, Technical Director MED-EL UK

Synopsis: This webinar will introduce the ADHEAR bone conduction system and discuss its potential advantages in treating OME. The functioning of the ADHEAR system will be reviewed, along with the treatment options for OME. This may be of particular relevance in the current situation where surgical options for treating OME are limited.


Fitting the ADHEAR

When: Wed 17th June 13.30-14.15 BST

Hosted by: Ben Meredith, Senior Clinical Specialist

Synopsis: Following last week’s webinar on the potential advantages of ADHEAR in fluctuating conductive hearing loss, this webinar will go through how to fit the ADHEAR system. Including positioning the adhesive, using the audio processor, and understanding the configurations.


Efficiencies in Fitting MED-EL CI Systems

When: Thu 25th June 12.00-12.45 BST

Hosted by: Chris Durst, Technical Director MED-EL UK

Synopsis: The suspension of normal clinic activity in the current crisis has likely generated a ‘backlog’ of new, and existing CI cases requiring some form of fitting procedure. In addition, one way of reducing transmission risk in any clinic situation is to reduce the time taken that a patient needs to be present. This indicates that means to reduce time taken in CI fitting is particularly relevant. In any fitting procedure, there is likely to be some trade-off between accuracy and speed. This webinar will outline methods to reduce fitting time in MED-EL CI systems, whilst minimising compromises.
