The first in a planned series of re-hab webinars will be held on 11th May 2pm – 3pm.

The title of this event is The Oomph Factor – Motivation in Adult CI Candidates and the presenters will be Jillian Ridgwell and Julie Carter.

It is evident that good outcomes following a cochlear implant (CI) are reliant on the recipient committing to the post implant programme and being able to get the necessary listening practise that will enable them to work towards their personal goals.  This webinar will discuss the importance of patient motivation and whether this should be more of a factor in determining whether an individual is a suitable CI candidate.  The presenters will discuss how pre-implant counselling and goal setting is used to identify potential issues regarding motivation.  They will also present case studies including an analysis of post CI outcomes (speech perception scores and quality of life) in relation to patient motivation and whether the outcome could have been predicted prior to implantation.

Please make a note of the date and time – the link to join will be available shortly!
