Cochlear Science and Research Seminar on-line - Bimodal in the Adult Population

Cochlear Science and Research Seminar on-line - Bimodal in the Adult Population

Bimodal is considered as treatment with a Cochlear Implant on one side and a hearing aid on the other side. This webinar gives an overview of the scientific research in this field, including what bimodal is and how the indication has changed over time. Experts in this field present on the parameters that could have an impact on the outcome, and what the most important outcome measures are to evaluate the bimodal benefit. In addition, the seminar addresses the indication boundaries when moving from binaural hearing aids to bimodal as well as the indication when moving from binaural to bilateral Cochlear Implant treatment. An interactive directed discussion covers “Candidacy in the clinical setup”.

This programme will be of interest to ENT doctors and Cochlear Implant surgeons, audiologists, acousticians and other clinicians and researchers.
