The Ultimate Paediatric Audiology Course
The Ultimate Paediatric Audiology Course
When: 1st to 5th July 2019
Where: Greenwich University, London
This popular and successful paediatric course will cover infant ABR training (1st and 2nd July) and paediatric hearing habilitation (3rd to 5thJuly) with national and international experts delivering the content. We have two new days to cover objective assessments used with cases referred from the newborn hearing screening programme (NHSP). These days are focussed on auditory brainstem response (ABR) testing and the interpretation of traces and on recording and interpreting diagnostic otoacoustic emissions (OAE). This component is followed by behavioural testing using visual reinforcement audiometry (VRA) including carrying out peer review of practical testing. This is followed by theory and practice in the process of verification and validation of amplification for babies and children with hearing loss. Our main speakers include Professor Susan Scollie, Dr Josephine Marriage, Dr Veronica Kennedy, Jason Smalley, Dr Jay Jindal. There is the option of ongoing mentorship around clinical practice needs. Individual days are bookable within the course content.

ABR and electrophysiological testing: 1st and 2nd July 2019:
This intensive ABR training will last two days and has theory and practical elements. These are designed to be appropriate for anyone who would like to start performing ABR assessments in babies. It is also suitable for someone who has been performing electrophysiological assessment for some time but would like to refresh their knowledge of basic and advanced principles of ABR testing.
The ABR course includes a two-hour pre-course webinar and two-day face to face training. However, we recognise that the two-day training can only provide basic competency in ABR testing, so there is an option of ongoing support to help develop ABR testing and interpretation of results in the clinic. This includes review of your ABR traces and mentorship for up to six months after the course attendance.
Paediatric Habilitation: 3rd-5th July 2019
This 3-day paediatric audiology course is our most popular annual course. We aim to cover the main aspects of advanced care in paediatric audiology to build skills and confidence in assessment and fitting of hearing instruments to children.
Key discussion topics include:
- Our most popular and successful annual course
- World renowned faculty
- Suitable for paediatric audiologists of all levels
- Plenty of practical elements to help you to evolve your own clinical practice and confidence
- Pre and post course webinar and mentorship for ongoing expert support
