Telehealth for Tinnitus
Presenter(s): Richard Tyler, PhD
Duration: 60 minutes
CEUs: 0.10 AAA/Tier 1
Instructional Level: Intermediate
Program Focus: Skills
Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:
- Describe the importance of connecting to the patient.
- List advantages and disadvantages or audio versus audiovisual connection.
- Describe how to use Tinnitus Activities Treatment via telehealth
Connecting with tinnitus patients remotely can be convenient for your patients and you! The same principles are important about connecting; being a good listener, and showing that you care. Audio connections can be easier; audiovisual can be preferable for others. Our clinic brochure offers 30- and 60-minute sessions. Sometimes they complete our Tinnitus Primary Functions Questionnaire before. Audio-visually, we can show images from our Tinnitus Activities Treatment in a structured counseling approach. Telehealth can precede and follow clinic visits, where hearing aids and sound therapy devices are provided.
