Beyond the Clinic: Creating Systems Change for Addressing Hearing Loss in Your State
July 21, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Presented by: Jan Withers & Tony Davis, MSW, NC Deaf and Hard of Hearing state agency
The clinical services audiologists provide are, of course, essential to addressing hearing health. However, given that denial among those with adult-onset hearing loss and lack of understanding surrounding hearing loss – prevention, identification, mitigation – are so pervasive and persistent, systems advocacy is necessary to move the needle in penetrating the need for timely and effective intervention and support. This lecture provides effective strategies and resources audiologists and their partners could use to foster timely identification and intervention and effective ongoing mitigation, outside the clinic, and offers North Carolina as a model for effecting systems change.
- Participants will be able to identify at least three systemic barriers to timely diagnosis and intervention of hearing loss.
- Participants will be able to describe what accessible communication is as it pertains to federal accessibility laws and identify at least three examples of common systemic barriers to accessible communication.
- Participants will be able to identify at least three strategies for creating partnerships with agencies and/or organizations in their states to advocate for timely hearing loss diagnosis and intervention and improved communication access for people with hearing loss.
