Abstract

Virtual Care, or telehealth, is a new frontier in the field of audiology. It presents many opportunities and challenges in our work. Specifically, the Virtual Care program at the Wavefront Centre for Communication Accessibility aims to provide access to hearing healthcare services to individuals who cannot access traditional hearing clinics in British Columbia. The program is still in its infancy but it holds promise to help change the way we deliver audiology. There are also other virtual care tools in the realm of telehealth that are available now that we could use.

NOTE: The presenter is an audiologist from BC and will be presenting information of particular interest to clinicians in that province.

 

This webinar is eligible for SAC CEEs.
