GN Otometrics announced that it is presenting its FittingNOW! Winter Series 2013, in conjunction with sister company GN ReSound.
The FittingNOW! Winter Series 2013 is designed to provide practicing clinicians and hearing health care professionals with updated information and techniques to apply when fitting amplification. This workshop will focus on the application of 2.4 GHz wireless technology for ear-to-ear communication and connection to audio devices. It will also update participants on the ways in which modern technology is meeting the needs of an aging population.
“As industry leaders, Otometrics and ReSound have a strong commitment to excellent clinical support and a well-established history of providing continuing education,” said Karen Morris, audiology education manager at Otometrics. “Our courses are designed around the ever-changing needs of hearing health care professionals and their patients. We are hoping that practitioners who attend this seminar will walk away with a wealth of information and experience that they will be able to put to use in the clinic the very next day.”
The FittingNOW Winter Series 2013 will teach participants about and demonstrate the latest technology behind wireless hearing instruments. Participants will learn how ear-to-ear communication works and the ways in which it will benefit the patient. Additionally, they will learn about best practices for recommending and fitting hearing instruments, including the latest form factors such as the micro CIC and power BTE. Finally, participants will gain insight into managing challenging patient scenarios, including how to transition patients to a new amplification system and how to align patients’ perceived “loudness” with their prescribed gain and output needs.
