The PATHWAY TO A Global Standard of Care for adults requiring cochlear implants

In this webinar, Associate Professor of Audiology at the University of Auckland, Holly Teagle and Cochlear Implant Surgeon, Michel Neeff discuss the pathway to a  global standard of care for adults requiring cochlear implants.

Background on the development of the standard of care:

A panel of international experts on hearing loss has developed a consensus document on the Standard of Care for adults with a severe hearing disability who no longer receive any beneļ¬t from hearing aids and require access to cochlear implant technology. In this webinar, Associate Professor of Audiology at the University of Auckland, Holly Teagle who was involved in the development of the Standard of Care, and Cochlear Implant Surgeon, Michel Neeff will discuss the beneficial health outcomes that they hope will derive from a globally standardised care approach for adults living with a severe hearing disability.
