CI Futures Forum: Consensus Towards Standard of Care

In every country access to cochlear implantation (CI) for adults with severe or profound hearing loss is low. Globally, it is estimated that only one in twenty who could benefit from cochlear implants have one. Most other health treatments have internationally accepted standards of care that inform patients and health care practitioners about when specialist referrals and treatment options should be considered.

This webinar will present the findings and recommendations from the International Consensus Paper on Adult Cochlear Implantation, the format will feature presentations from authors of the paper as well as a panel discussion around the significance of the publication and the call to action to move towards a standard of care for adult cochlear implantation.

Chair: Gerard O'Donoghue (Nottingham)

Presenters: Professor Wu Hao (CN), Professor Seung Ha Oh (KR), Professor Pu Dai (CN), Associate Professor Jenny Loo (SG), Dr Kuang Chao (Joshua) Chen (TW), Dr Kalyani Mandke (IN)

The panel will present real world examples from their own perspective and experience as well as discussing potential solutions to increasing equity and access for adults.
