4 Pre-Conference Early Sessions - Thursday, February 26, :00-5:00 p.m. Pre-registration is required More information available at AUDIOLOGY TRACK 2:00-3:30 p.m. (.3 CEU, ABA Tier One) Updates in Clinical Practice: Focus on Tinnitus Management Jill Meltzer, AuD - North Shore Audio-Vestibular Lab This presentation will review common etiologies of tinnitus as well as current tinnitus treatments. Managing the tinnitus patient can be challenging, but also rewarding. Effective counseling is the first step in transitioning the person suffering with tinnitus to someone who is managing their tinnitus. Many tools are available and this presentation will review some of the items that may help the patient build their own tinnitus toolbox.

Dr. Meltzer has no relevant financial or nonfinancial relationships to disclose. 3:30-5:00 p.m. Running A Successful Tinnitus Clinic Michael Piskosz, MS, Board certified in Audiology - GN ReSound Tinnitus is a concern for many people, and affects approximately 15% of the population. In addition, roughly 80% of tinnitus sufferers also have some treatable hearing loss. As hearing loss is increasingly identified and diagnosed, this trend is most likely to continue and grow, therefore putting tinnitus on the horizon of standard audiology practice. The audiology community for decades has struggled with incorporating tinnitus into its standard practice. Consequently, many clinicians feel overwhelmed and uncertain about tinnitus and what can be done, often times not knowing even where to start. With the growing reports of tinnitus, the demand of knowledge and effective solutions to help these individuals is strengthening. In this session we will review strategies and practices of many tinnitus clinics around the world, and offer guidance on where to start when incorporating tinnitus into one s practice. Topics such as choosing a tinnitus protocol, therapy timelines/logistics, continuing education, marketing and billing will be discussed. Michael Piskosz, MS is employed by GN ReSound and receives a salary. Mr. Piskosz has no relevant nonfinancial relationships to disclose.

Lisa A Vinney, PhD, CCC-SLP - Communication Sciences and Disorders, Illinois State University Miriam van Mersbergen, Ph D, CCC-SLP - Allied Health and Communicative Disorders, Northern Illinois University Researchers have no idea what patients really need. Clinicians are so full of bias it s a wonder we know anything at all. These are familiar statements that can be heard in the halls of academia, on medical wards, and in clinic rooms. On the surface, the relationship between the clinician and researcher may appear at odds. However, in the end, the people that we serve are at the heart of each discipline. This presentation will discuss how research and clinic work promote health, well-being, and improvement in our patients and clients. After an introduction including the purpose, training, and the underlying philosophy and goals of each discipline, the presenters will detail case studies that explore the research-clinic relationship.

6 Pre-Conference Late Sessions Thursday 26, :00-9:00 p.m. Pre-registration is required. AUDIOLOGY (.3 CEU, ABA Tier One) ICS Impulse - Revolutionizing Vestibular Assessment Gretchen Switzer, AuD - Audiologyiology Systems/GN Otometrics The ability to perform head impulse testing in the past was primarily performed by physicians or large research facilities with access to the scleral search coil. Now the head impulse has been brought to the mainstream due to many years of research. Over 6 years were spent perfecting the ability to perform head impulse testing using a video goggle. This new technology now makes head impulse testing accessible for any clinician. However, the understanding of what is gained by performing the head impulse test, how to perform the head impulse test, and how does the data obtained assist in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient are questions clinicians have. The purpose of this seminar is to discuss the evaluation of all 5 end organs (semicircular canals, saccule and utricle) of the vestibular system. We ll address several questions. Why can this information be crucial to the diagnosis of the patient? How may this information assist in determining the treatment? How can the effectiveness of the treatment be assessed? Participants will have the opportunity for hands-on experience with ICS Impulse. Gretchen Switzer, AuD is employed by Audiology Systems/GN Otometrics and receives a salary. Dr. Switzer has no nonfinancial relationships to disclose. BIRTH TO SIX SLP TRACK 6:00-7:30 p.m. (.15 CEU) More information coming soon. See for details. 7:30-9:00 p.m. (.15 CEU) Use of a Low Stimulation Environment of Care to Improve Outcomes for Infants Withdrawing from Maternal Substances Janice Ancona, MSN, RN - Wheaton Franciscan - St. Joseph Campus Increasing numbers of newborns are withdrawing from maternal methadone, multiple drugs of abuse, or chronic pain medications. The physiological and behavioral complications with feeding, sleeping, and central nervous system instability result in prolonged hospital stays (LOS), which create complex issues for infants/families and for the interdisciplinary care team. Standard minimal stimulation approaches to care of premies seemed too stimulating for infants during withdrawal. The purpose of this innovation was to decrease environmental and direct stimulation lower than the standard in order to lessen the occurrence and severity of withdrawal symptoms, which would decrease the need for pharmacological management of symptoms, and therefore decrease the total LOS. The use of a low stimulation room and approach to care of infants during withdrawal was associated with significant decreases in: LOS, pharmacological management, and discharge on medications. Janice Ancona, MSN, RN is employed by Wheaton Franciscan - St. Joseph Campus. Ms. Ancona has no relevant financial or nonfinancial relationships to disclose.

VEMPs are frequently used in the early detection of Meniere s disease and can help confirm the side of the lesion. VEMPs can also be used to detect Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence (SSCD). The VEMP uses a high intensity click or toneburst to induce the inhibitory impulse at the ipsilateral sternocleidomastoid (SCM) muscle. Consequently, because it is looking at a muscle potential it can be used in patients with even a severe to profound hearing loss. This presentation will focus on how to set up a VEMP protocol in your office; including equipment needed, patient preparation, set-up parameters and performing the test. Discussion will also take place on how VEMPS along with rotary chair testing and videonystagmography testing can help enhance your vestibular diagnosis.
