Description: The delivery model for hearing aids has been changing, and will continue to change, with the Food and Drug Administration’s marketing authorization for the first self-fitted hearing aid.  Debate has ensued regarding the consumers ability to successfully manage their hearing difficulties without professional intervention.

This presentation will provide tips to prepare and manage this new category of hearing aids in your practice.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify next steps in the regulatory and rule making process for Over-the-Counter Hearing Aids and how then can engage in this process.
  2. Discuss the pros and cons of including Over-the-Counter hearing aids in their practice.
