Working Better with your Hearing
Maximizing your potential as a deafened person - Utilising Audiology Services and Improving your employment opportunities
The Conference this year intends to address two key themes captured by NHS England and DWP in
their joint "What works" publications, Audiology and Employment.
The morning session will cover the person centred approach advocated in the Action Plan on Hearing Loss. Our speakers will cover changes in audiology and support services, social services and compare services offered in Cochlear Implant and Hearing Aid departments. It will also include the results of NADPs Audiology Survey and strategies to improve communication from a hearing coach. There will be a panel discussion with an opportunity for the audience to ask questions and share their views.
The afternoon will look at the changing employment market. We will investigate the What works for Employment findings as documented in NHS England/DWP publications and look at strategies being put in place to assist deafened people in employment and those seeking new opportunities. We also intend to look at recent research on diversity in the voluntary sector. The afternoon will be completed with a panel discussion with an opportunity for comments and questions from the floor.
Doors open at 9.00 am and the Conference itself starts at 10.00 am.
