This practice development course, designed for business owners and practice managers, will highlight the importance of practicing at the top of the audiology scope. Participants will learn how audition, balance, and cognitive screenings work synergistically in audiology practice to produce excellent outcomes, happy patients, and referral sources. The course will provide participants with an overview of best practices in assessing and managing hearing and balance disorders with an emphasis on the role of cognition. Participants will be provided with excellent tools and information to add valuable service lines to their practice resulting in improved patient care and increased revenue!
