    Give Your Patients Even More NEW

    Kelly Stahl, AuD 

    With Oticon More™ we used our BrainHearing™ philosophy to give the brain more of the important information it needs to make sense of sound. Clinical results show a strong preference for the sound quality of Oticon More. In this course we will explore additional options and styles that will help your patients get even more out of life.


    It’s Time for More 

    Kelly Stahl, AuD 

    Sound scenes are dynamic, complex and unpredictable. It’s the role of the brain to handle this complexity and make sense of it all. Taking our revolutionary BrainHearing technologies to the next level, we created a hearing aid that works more like how the brain works. In this course we will explore the practical product details and patient benefits of our newest product family Oticon More.


    The Audiology of Oticon More 

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Oticon has long distinguished itself in creating cutting edge solutions for the most difficult problems faced by persons with hearing impairment. With the release of Oticon More, we are again introducing new approaches to allow for the highest levels of performance for users. In this course, we will describe the design and performance of our new core features, MoreSound Intelligence™ and MoreSound Amplifier™.


    Navigating Genie Software - Fitting and Fine Tuning  

    Chalese Buttars, AuD 

    Being able to efficiently and effectively program instruments is an integral part of the fitting process. In this course, the step-by-step process with Genie fitting software will be reviewed. Additional fitting tools available in the software to assist with fine tuning and customizing the fitting will also be shown.


    Our Evolving Understanding of the Reaction to Aging 

    Don Schum, PhD 

    As our main target audience for hearing care shifts into the Baby Boom generation, so should our understanding of how these individuals view the aging process. The well‑known attitudes and behaviors of this new generation of seniors will inevitably affect how they respond to developing communication difficulties.

  • > Pediatrics

    Personal Protection Equipment and Students with Hearing Loss 

    Dave Gordey, PhD 

    Children with hearing loss returning to school may encounter teachers and other school‑based professionals who will be using personal protective equipment (PPE). This webinar will share data on the effect of different PPE on audibility for students with hearing loss.


    Hearing Aids for Children and Teens: Tips and Tricks for Successful Fittings

    Dave Gordey, PhD  

    This course reflects upon best practice in pediatric amplification and will discuss practical clinical strategies when following clinical guidelines. Meeting DSL targets, choice of test signal, applications of the RECD, and considerations for open/thin tube hearing device fittings for children will be discussed.


    Enhancing the Classroom Experience

    Candace Depp, AuD 

    Remote microphones are being utilized in schools to improve access to a teacher’s voice for children with hearing loss. However, little attention has been given to its design or usability by school-based professionals and their students. In this session, we will introduce research that impacted development of a device from Oticon that ushers in a new era of connection in the classroom and share its innovative features.


    Supporting Education, Advocacy and Knowledge for Students with Hearing Loss

    Dave Gordey, PhD  

    Anecdotal evidence suggests that deaf and hard of hearing students benefit when involved in structured, supportive, peer‑to‑peer experiences. Two successful school-based peer support groups located in Alberta and Ohio have achieved these positive outcomes. Factors contributing to success were a leader-mentor model combined with student, audiologist and community mentors. Our aim with this work was to develop a template for a structured school-based support and resource program, that could guide school-based hearing care professionals on how to bring together students with hearing loss to share experiences, learn about education, advocacy, and living with hearing loss. A survey of North American school‑based hearing professionals along with a review of the literature was completed.

  • > Technology and the Patient

    The Technical and Physiological Effects of Opn S™ 

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Oticon Opn S features a unique approach to processing speech in complex environments – OpenSound Navigator. In this seminar, the effect of this signal processing approach on the ability of the brain to lock on to more than one speaker in the environment will be demonstrated. Further, the unique speed and effectiveness of OpenSound Navigator compared to alternative approaches will also be demonstrated.


    Oticon Ruby. Made to Move.

    Ena Nielsen, PhD 

    Getting teams onboard with change can be challenging. This course introduces clinical leads and managers to the Ida Change Guide, an enjoyable and easy‑to‑use process for involving their teams in the change journey and implementing person-centered care in their clinic.


    Oticon Patient Acceptance Technologies

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Most attention in the development of hearing aid technologies focuses on assisting the patient in challenging environments. However, we also recognize that patients require comfort, great sound quality and practical solutions such as rechargeability, connectivity and apps.


    Making Patients Ready for Amplification

    Don Schum, PhD 

    Many patients who seek out information about amplification may not be truly ready to be fit. In this course, we examine the mindset of the potential first time user and discuss approaches to make the patient ready to be a successful, long‑time user.
