FURTHER INFORMATION AND BOOKING

Overview:

This course aims to explore in depth the experience of deafness, and to examine a range of patient-centred approaches to adult audiological rehabilitation. Attending the course should equip participants to work with people with hearing loss more effectively, both individually and in groups. As well as hearing from experts in the field, we will take a holistic view and draw on expertise from beyond the boundaries of audiology to consider the wider needs of the patients we work with. Participants will learn about recent evidence from a variety of sources which is clinically relevant. This is a very interactive course which includes evaluation of journal articles, video clips and discussion forums involving service users, group activities and role play. You will be expected to do some reading in advance.

Course themes:

  • Day 1 - Person-centred care and meeting the needs of non-routine patients with a hearing therapy approach
  • Day 2 - How you can use groups, classes and peer support to benefit people with hearing loss. Improving access with technology
  • Day 3 - Delegate case presentations with discussion and journal club activities.

Teaching structure:

You'll learn from a mixture of lectures, discussions and interactive workshops. The lectures will present both research evidence and personal accounts. There will be several interactive sessions in which topics from the lectures will be discussed and you’ll be able to share your own experiences. This ensures that everyone has the opportunity to participate fully and network with others who have similar interests.
