Screening for hearing loss in adults is important for the identification of potential candidates for cochlear implantation. Clearer and appropriate criteria for diagnosis of those who may be a candidate for cochlear implants will help create a clear pathway to implantation and improve understanding of the benefits and appropriateness of CIs by health professionals and the general public. The guidelines and evidence are clear that older age should be no barrier to cochlear implantation.**
This webinar will feature presentations from a diverse multi disciplinary panel of experts. The panel will present real world examples from their own perspective and experience as well as discussing the recommendations from the Consensus paper. These webinars are open to all hearing health professionals, cochlear implant teams, cochlear implant users, advocacy groups and commissioners of health care.
