we wrap up our conference recordings talking about forensic audiology with Dr. Bob Traynor. We discuss what a forensic audiologist is, what it takes to be a forensic audiologist, what is expected when someone provides expert opinions, and even how to charge for services.
ATA Board Chair and audiologists extraodinaire, LaGuinn Sherlock, joins us to talk about dealing with tinnitus in a primary care audiology clinic. Also, Hubert Lim, researcher and Chief Scientific Officer of Neuromod stops by to share a sneak peek of their clinical trials with a bimodal stimulation device for tinnitus treatment.
We cover the latest news in audiology, including a couple very interesting new papers involving vestibular function. Plus, the potential legal ramifications of NOT following standards come to life for John.
We kick off 2019 with two audiology mergers, new information about US diplomats in Cuba, and a new tool for screening children. Plus, discussion of a physician’s recent article admonishing audiologists for inaccurate statements on noise exposure.
We are joined by one of our favorite special guests (really our very favorite, but shhhh! don’t tell the others) Gail Whitelaw for an in-depth discussion about adhering to standards in audiology education. Are we letting our students down? Plus, some exciting epidemiological research and our professional organizations miss the boat (again).
Is hearing loss declining in older adults? A new BAHA is approved, Auditory neurons may be even more specilized than we thought, and is telemedicine ready to take off? We talk about all that, plus a defensive contractor who behaved very badly and may have endangered the health of countless military personnel.
Get ready to have your mind blown! The second day of the AAA Conference in Nashville brings us a futuristic conversation with Dave Fabry, PhD, and Jason Galster, Phd – except the future is now! Emerging technology in hearing instruments may very well take audiologists to paces we have never been before.
AudiologyTalk introduces a new host in this episode. We catch up on news from our word-forced hiatus (yes, we actually have to work every now and then) and do a one-year-later announcement of an important audiology project started right on this program in 2017!
John and Dean discuss news ranging from printing prosthetic ossicles to new insights in cisplatin effects on the ear. Plus, we discuss how to incorporate tinnitus care in your practice and what every audiologist should know about tinnitus.
Some drugs make it and some don’t, while there may still be hope for physicians referring patients with hearing loss. In the end, we have a good reason to rant even more than usual and so John and Dean end happy.
A condensed version of AudiologyTalk covers industry news, gene therapy, and whether a legal firm can force insurance companies to cover hearing instruments. We finish with a super rare sighting of two co-hosts without a single thought to discuss.
We we don’t personally subscribe to anything having to do with preparation or forethought when podcasting, John and Dean recognize the value of promoting prevention in an audiology practice and discuss some ideas you can use during Protect Your Hearing month (that’s October, by the way).
Our first guest in a while may also be one of our most important ever, as we discuss one of the most fundamental aspects of clinical practice: infection control. This is the episode you want to hear, share, and maybe even take notes about!
We look at an update to the National Academies of Science position on OTC hearing aids, a new 3M hearing conversation web site and a possible new otoprotective drug. Plus, audiologists talking about socialized medicine? WHAT?!
In this extra-long episode, John and Dean catch up on the current news and research since our last episode and thoroughly explore the content and implications of the OTC hearing aid bill currently in Congress.
