Complex case discussions are increasingly popular and necessary to support the growing number of CI candidates/recipients with complex needs. While each case is unique, there are certain common characteristics and guidelines for case management that, based on scientific, technological and clinical evidence, may apply to all cases. This one-day course on how to approach complex CI cases requires interactive participation.
This course will provide information on:
- How to identify important events, data, etc. from multiple sources
- What investigations may be useful for specific issues
- How a multidisciplinary approach may achieve an optimal resolution
- How complex case management may be incorporated within general CI service planning
Complex cases (meningitis, auditory neuropathy, additional disabilities, deaf-blind, long duration deafness, syndromes …) will be presented, but participants are encouraged to bring their own complex CI cases to discuss during the workshop.
Who should attend:
Experienced CI professionals and clinicians (audiologists, speech language therapists, engineers) who work in a multidisciplinary team and who currently have a case with complex needs or who are interested in different approaches to effectively and efficiently manage a challenging caseload.
