The second Healthy Hearing Ears seminar was held online on October 14th 2021. More than 300 individuals registered for the event and we would like to thank everybody that participated to make it a huge success. For those of you that could not attend, we are pleased to be able to provide an overview of the seminar and share the recordings with you below.
Part 1 – Guest Presentations
During the first half of the seminar, guest speakers Dr Xabier Altuna and Professor Fazil Ardiç presented the exciting multi-center investigations they are working on with clinics across Spain and Turkey, respectively. These ongoing studies are investigating health-related quality of life, healthcare utilization, and hearing outcomes in patients with chronic otitis media (COM). Using the COMOT-15, Dr Altuna highlighted that patients with COM regard their hearing loss as a significant problem. Professor Ardiç showed that patients with COM made multiple visits to their healthcare provider over a period of six months, which patients reported using the Client Service Receipt Inventory.
Part 2 – Case Discussion
In the second half of the seminar, the Advisory Board joined Dr Altuna and Professor Ardiç to discuss treatment options in six COM cases. The six cases covered a range of indications, which provided the foundation for an interesting and lively discussion regarding hearing rehabilitation.
We hope that you enjoyed the recordings. If you have any questions regarding the current seminar, or suggestions for upcoming seminars or research topics, please email us via firstname.lastname@example.org
