Hearing care professionals often encounter people who complain of hearing difficulties and trouble hearing in noise but, when tested, they present with hearing sensitivity and thresholds that are within “normal limits”.
This webinar will review the audiological evidence regarding this unique population and make the case for educating them about sophisticated technology options, including hearing aids and wireless technology such as remote microphones which have been proven to be extremely useful for enhancing their communication and quality of life.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By participating in the webinar, you will be able to:
  • describe hearing issues in population with ‘normal’ audiograms;
  • understand the functions and pitfalls of common speech in noise testing methods;
  • discuss evidenced based management options for hidden hearing loss.

BSHAA CPD POINTS

This webinar is likely to attract up to 2.5 BSHAA CPD points (1.5 plus 1 point for recording your reflections)
