The cochlear implant Champions scheme was launched by Martin O’Driscoll from BCIG and Ann-Marie Dickinson from BAA Service Quality Committee at the BAA conference 2019. The aim of the scheme is to ensure all eligible adults and children, and their families, are well-informed about cochlear implants and are offered a timely referral. The Mentor is a role taken on by an experienced CI audiologist who works within a CI team. Their role is to support the Champions, who will each support their own team. The Champions and Mentor form a link between implant and referral services.
Please see the BAA website for more information about the Champions Scheme. If you use Auditbase, you can run reports to help you to identify patients who are audiometrically suitable for cochlear implant referral. Please email BCIG for more information and support.
