Rehabilitation for Adults with Acquired Hearing Loss: 6 - 8 December 2017

This course aims to explore in depth the experience of deafness, and to examine a range of approaches to adult audiological rehabilitation. Attending the course should equip participants to work with people with hearing loss more effectively, both individually and in groups. 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. This is a very interactive course which includes evaluation of journal articles, video clips and discussion forums involving service users, group activities and role play. You will be expected to do some reading in advance.

• How to use motivational interviewing to encourage behaviour change (day 1)
