UCL Ear Institute



The course for 2015 will return to the UCL Ear Institute.

Rehabilitation for Adults with Acquired Hearing Loss: December 2016 TBC

This course aims to explore in depth the experience of deafness, and to examine a range of non-technological approaches to adult audiological rehabilitation. As well as hearing from experts in the field, we will take a holistic view and draw on expertise from beyond the boundaries of audiology to consider the wider needs of the patients we work with. Participants will learn about recent evidence from a variety of sources which is clinically relevant and should be of particular interest to those who specialise in aural rehabilitation or those who wish to take on more responsibility in this area. A mixture of lectures, discussions and interactive workshops ensures that all delegates have the opportunity to fully participate and network with others who have similar interests.

Topics will include:

  • Understanding the experience of deafness from personal and research perspectives
  • Research from UCL’s new Centre for Behaviour Change and how it applies to audiology
  • Innovative ways of supporting patients with self-management
  • Understanding how ageing and dementia affect quality of life
  • Improving access to audiology for people with learning disabilities

  • Dr Caroline Wood: Assistant Director, UCL Centre for Behaviour Change
  • Fiona Barker: Audiological Scientist, Windsor Audiology centre
  • Milijana Malmberg: Sahlgrenska Academy, Gothenberg University, Sweden
