BSHAA’s professional development day at Gatwick airport on September 10th was so successful that for the first time for some time bookings were closed early because the venue was full. Here you can read some of the presentations and other material presented to delegates. Speakers included Nicole de Rocha who ably stepped in at the last minute to describe the so many ways in which the fine detail of the fitting can offset the benefits provided by the technology in the wrong hands.
Matt Murray spoke on verification, and how an audiologist can know that the measurements and results they are achieving are reliable and later joined Tony Rainer to demonstrate the use of some of the readily available diagnostic tools. Nehzat Koohi explained some of the mechanisms that may contribute to auditory processing disorders, a discussion taken further by Curtis Alcock who explored the links between hearing, ageing and cognition. Jay Jindal described how some of the less familiar diagnostic techniques can be used to guide the audiologist towards a more effective outcome for some clients.
Earlier, Peter Sydserff, the Society’s president, began with a brief update on the working of the Society, seizing the opportunity to invite members to consider serving their colleagues by standing in the forthcoming elections to Council, or volunteering to work with the committees whose job it is to ensure that the Society continues to live up to its purpose.
