CIREN introduction training

CIREN is a Nordic network for audiologist. It is initiated by Cochlear Nordic and the purpose of CIREN is to strengthen the clinics knowledge.

We are happy to invite one audiologist to our introduction training for CIREN – CI Referral Expert Network.

CIREN is a Nordic network for audiologist. It is initiated by Cochlear Nordic and the purpose of CIREN is to strengthen the clinics knowledge about:

  • Severe to profound hearing loss
  • How to identify and support candidates for cochlear implant (CI)
  • Share and receive experience and knowledge from others in the Network

The audiologist will become a resource for your clinic and will through the CIREN network get training on how to train other professionals at the clinic.  The introduction training and the CIREN network do not have focus on products but how to assist patients with severe to profound hearing loss in the best way.

The training will be a mix between lectures and working in small groups. The goal is to create an arena with a lot of interaction to increase the learning outcomes and to make the group safe so the network will be able to develop as good as possible.

We look forward to learn with you in December.
