Much uncertainty exists about the lasting impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our personal and professional lives. In the hearing care professions, there will be an increased focus on the need to sanitize items that come in frequent contact with patients, such as transducer cables from audiometers, immittance instruments, OAE analyzers, and hearing instrument verification systems, just to name a few. It’s also quite possible that, at least for the near future, hearing care professionals (HCPs) will want to limit close contact with patients. In a profession that requires close contact during almost all patient encounters, this is going to be a challenge, to say the least.
Have these uncertain times caused you to experience more downtime than your used to? If so, we have some incredible educational opportunities that will help you make the most of the extra time you have on your hands.

What Is Tele-Audiology
Many people don’t have the time to see their health care providers. It’s a sad, but true, fact of life. The constraints of career and family obligations make it difficult for many to find time to see their primary care physicians, let alone specialists such as audiologists.
And then there are those who lack access to care, such as people living in rural communities. When the nearest audiology practice is an hour drive away, it’s difficult to find the motivation to seek treatment.
While vision screening is important in patients of all ages, it is especially critical for children. According to American Association for Pediatric Ophthalmology & Strabismus (AAPOS), 1 in 20 children are at risk of permanent vision loss due to disorders like amblyopia. The good news is, the same foundation states that 80% of these cases can be prevented or cured with early detection and treatment.
