1 - Successful Management of Hearing Loss Depends on Patient-centered Care

Date & Time: 
Apr 20 2016 - 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Summary:
The patient has always been the central element in hearing health care. In the past, the dialogue between the patient and the provider regarding communication strategies and options was often the only treatment, especially when technology was limited. However, with rapid advances in hearing aids and cochlear implants, the model of care shifted away from patient-centered care to a medical model approach whereby the provider “prescribed devices” and did little else. Patients were viewed as a “hearing loss” rather than as individuals and were alienated from the decision making process. This presentation will focus on how to put the “patient” back at the center of patient centeredness with an emphasis on the empowering the patient to become actively involved in determining the management strategy most consistent with their preferences and values.

2 - Let's #captiontheworld

Date & Time: 
May 18 2016 - 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Summary:
Lauren will introduce the organization called the "Collaborative for Communication Access via Captioning" or as many know it now, the CCAC, a non-profit registered in the U.S. with many global participants.

Not a hearing loss nor deaf organization per se, the CCAC attracts many people with hearing loss, as well as many interested in education, literacy, languages, disabilities, technologies, and accessibility. She will address some of the pros and cons of an all-volunteer group, and the challenges of continuing captioning activism.

Mention will be made of an exciting first captioning conference as well as some information about the new IFHOH survey about captioning. Time for questions about advocacy will be welcome.

Many CCAC members also belong to long-established and important groups such as HLAA, ALDA, IFHOH, and more. Together, CCAC says, “Let's #captiontheworld.”
