The morning portion of this workshop is titled “Pre-Fitting Testing and Selection Considerations”.

The workshop will also review technology considerations and techniques for gathering information within the time constraints of everyday clinical practice.

The topic for the afternoon will be “Advanced Hearing Aid Features: Verification, Refinement and Outcomes”. In this section, we will discuss a variety of issues including the verification and individualization of advanced features, interactions between technology and environment and the measurement of outcomes.
