Featured Webinars

More Power. More Choices. More Freedom. NEW
Kelly Stahl, AuD 
Oticon Opn S™ built on the OpenSound paradigm delivering improved speech understanding while reducing listening effort. Now with Oticon Xceed, we extend the open sound experience to patients with severe to profound hearing impairment. For individuals struggling with single sided deafness, we bring the benefits of open sound experience with a new CROS solution.

Managing Severe Hearing Loss NEW
Don Schum, PhD  
A significant subset of patients seen in practices present with more severe hearing loss and more complex medical histories. In this seminar, the nature of severe hearing loss will be discussed along with a discussion of how to best match available technology choices (power devices, BiCROS, etc) to patient needs.

Oticon breaks the rules. Again. – Introducing Oticon Opn S
Kelly Stahl, AuD
First Oticon created a new paradigm in hearing care. Now, we are breaking the rules again. With Oticon Opn S, we take the open sound experience to the next level. This course describes Oticon's Velox S™, the fastest and most advanced platform developed to date by Oticon. It also discusses the major features of Oticon Opn S, including OpenSound Optimizer™ and OpenSound Booster. It will also review the advantages of Oticon's new rechargeable miniRITE R. 

Patient Consultations 

A Deeper Look at Sound Environments NEW
Donald J. Schum, PhD
The characteristics of the sound environment have a fundamental impact on the performance of the hearing aid user. In this course, we will describe the obvious and sometimes more subtle aspects of sound environments that will affect hearing aid performance.

Perception in Noise NEW
Donald J. Schum, PhD
The human cognitive system is designed to process information and to inform the person about the nature of the environment that they are in. In this seminar, we will examine how that natural process is complicated when a person with hearing loss is attempting to understand spoken language.

Hearing Loss, Aging & Speech Understanding 
Donald J. Schum, PhD
Effective speech understanding, especially in complex environments, requires both a well-functioning auditory system and a cognitive system that can efficiently and accurately process information, but our older patients can be challenged on both fronts. In this seminar, the cognitive nature of speech understanding will be viewed in light of the extra pressure that is exerted when hearing loss corrupts the information that is passed along from the periphery.

Social Isolation in the Older Adult 
Donald J. Schum, PhD
As age-related hearing loss is often part of a broader list of body change that the older adult experiences. Typical reaction patterns can lead the person down the path of isolation (either consciously or subconsciously), putting the patient at further health and cognitive risk. 

Brain versus Machine
Donald J. Schum, PhD
Many first time hearing aid users are at risk for quick rejection of amplification. In this course, we will present our best recommendations on how to make post-fitting adjustments for patients who are new to the world of amplification.

The Follow-up Process for New Users 
Donald J. Schum, PhD
Recommendations on making post-fitting adjustments for patients new to amplification.

Pediatrics 

Open up a World of Power for Pediatric Patients NEW
Candace Depp, AuD  
Oticon’s pediatric ambition is clear; we want to create a better future for every child with hearing loss – not least of those with a severe-to-profound hearing loss. In most cases, these children need immediate support in order to open up to the world, connect with loved ones, grow, thrive, and learn. This session will introduce the latest solutions setting a new standard among pediatric power hearing aids.

Solutions That Work Where Children Learn and Play 
Candace Depp, AuD 
At Oticon, we have a specific focus on developing technologies and intervention approaches that support the broad range of cognitive development in the child. This session will review the latest solutions designed to support children in both social and educational settings and discuss the latest research documenting the benefits of Oticon Opn for pediatric use.

Bone Conduction Hearing Device Fitting Practices in Pediatrics 
Dave Gordey, MSc AuD (C), PhD Candidate 
For children who are not candidates for air conduction hearing aids, bone conduction hearing devices are available. Unfortunately, fitting protocols are not well developed for these devices. This is challenging for pediatric audiologists who rely on objective measures of hearing devices to support their patient’s communication development. Bone conduction hearing devices and candidacy considerations for the pediatric population will be reviewed. Findings from a clinical survey will be offered to inform the current practices for fitting these devices in children.

Oticon Redefines Child-friendly Hearing Care 
Candace Depp, AuD 
Children live, learn, and interact in exceptionally diverse listening environments, and the differing characteristics of each, make all of them uniquely challenging. Being able to make sense of sound is crucial to children’s development and growth. Oticon introduces a whole new way for children to hear sounds and thereby increases speech understanding in noise. This promotes better conditions to meet developmental needs and the day-to-day challenges of growing up. In this session, we discuss the advancements that bring the highest level of patient benefit to all parts of the pediatric segment to optimize listening and learning opportunities. Product practicalities and the latest research will also be reviewed.

Connectivity 

Oticon ConnectClip: Keeping You Connected
Candace Depp, AuD
Use ConnectClip as a new offering that can help Oticon Opn™ wearers participate more actively with mobile and Bluetooth devices.

Tinnitus 

Person-Centered Care in Tinnitus Management
Cherilee Rutherford
This course will provide a basic introduction to 3 practical tools that clinicians can use to help deliver person centered care to tinnitus patients.
