TPA Associate* Course Abstract

Audiologists are uniquely qualified to provide tinnitus care, but, many are reluctant for a variety of reasons.  There are fears that they do not have the skills to help tinnitus patients, or, that they will not be financially rewarded for their services.  This practical course will empower audiologists to feel confident about their ability to provide basic care to their patients with tinnitus complaints.  A structured program of assessments and diagnostics will help the audiologist determine the patient classification and recommend a management plan or referral.  The ability to market and educate in their communities is an excellent opportunity to elevate and expand their practice and serve a population in search of care.
