Every recipient has their unique abilities, listening needs, and requirements for their implant and sound processor. Therefore, a one-size-fits-all approach to programming is unlikely to provide your recipients with the best outcomes. Individualized audiological assessment, programming, and counseling is paramount.

With the past two webinar series equipping you with clinical best practices, rehabilitation interventions, and knowledge on comprehensive and complete solutions by Advanced Bionics, it's time to put theory into practice! This 3-session masterclass series with 2 industry experts presents assessing and optimizing hearing programs to provide the best hearing performance for your recipients.
