American Cochlear Implant Alliance CI 2013 Conference
American Cochlear Implant Alliance confirms its upcoming conference on October 24-26, 2013 in Washington, DC at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill.
"Emerging Issues in Cochlear Implantation" will be a symposium addressing research, clinical implications, and cost effectiveness. Planned as an educational event for cochlear implant clinicians, educators and government officials, the symposium will explore the latest research results, discuss the clinical population, and raise questions regarding clinical implications.
Each of six 3-hour topical segments will include expert speakers from across the treatment continuum: otologists, researchers, audiologists, and (re)habilitative clinicians and/or educators of children with hearing loss. The final hour of each segment will consist of a panel. The six topics are:
- Hearing Preservation
- Implantation of the Very Young
- Implanting Multiply Involved Children
- Cochlear Implants in Single-Sided Deafness
- Hearing and General Health Outcomes in Elderly Patients
- Telehealth and Cochlear Implantation
The request for poster proposals will open on/around April 15 and will be due May 30. We especially welcome proposals on the above six topics but other important issues in cochlear implantation will also be considered.
Conference and hotel registration will open May 1. Significant conference discounts will be offered to professional and organizational members.
All proposal and registration materials will be accessible via the ACI Alliance website.
