“What noise annoys an oyster?”

Diagnostic Speech Testing to aid Aural Rehabilitation

Dr Priya Carling, AuD, RHAD
Director and Consultant Audiologist, Kent Hearing Ltd

Normal hearers take for granted the various complex interactions and processes going on within us to be able to make sense of and respond appropriately to our auditory environment.  As clinicians, we have a challenging task of providing management solutions for those with hearing loss.  Challenging because we have a host of tools to choose from for diagnosis; some old, some new, and not unlimited time in which to do it all! 

This talk will give an overview of the complexities of hearing including hearing in noise, auditory scene analysis and cognitive load, and in considering these aspects, suggest a few options for diagnosis so that we are left with a good amount of information to help our patients make the best technology and rehabilitation choices, and very importantly inform our counselling on an individualised basis.


How to Change Someone Else’s Behaviour

Helen Hamilton

You may want to change someone’s behaviour… a customer, a work colleague, your boss, or your partner (good luck with that one!). For every behaviour, there is a reason. To get the most out of people, we need to understand what is driving their behaviour, and then appeal to this. This session explores core values and how they may affect both our own and other people’s behaviours.

With over 20 years experience in Customer Service, Training and Management, Helen has a passion for helping others learn and apply the best ideas and techniques in order to make service a worthwhile business difference.


Looking at Listening Eyes: Insights and Applications

Dr Graham Naylor – Section Director – Medical Research Council, Chief Scientist – Office Institute of Hearing Research – Scottish Section


The 3D Tune-In Project

Dr Lorenzo Picinali – Senior Lecturer in Audio Experience Design, Director of Undergraduate Studies – Dyson School of Design Engineering, Imperial College London

Dr Picinali will present the above named project, which aims at introducing a novel approach using 3D sound, visuals and gamification techniques to support people using hearing aid devices.

Professor David Baguley

Tinnitus Update: Theory and Practice

In this presentation David will undertake a guided tour through recent insights and developments in tinnitus. Research into mechanisms of tinnitus has made progress, and there are some new ideas about the relationship between tinnitus and decreased sound tolerance (hyperacusis). Clinical practice is also changing, and there are opportunities for independent sector Audiologists to support and treat patients with tinnitus.

Professor Marshall Chasin, AuD
Director of Auditory Research at the Musicians’ Clinics of Canada, Recipient of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal & Editor in Chief, Canadian Audiologist.

Hearing Aids & Music:

Music and speech have some differences which include spectral shape, intensity and “crest factors”.  Most modern digital hearing aids cannot handle the more intense inputs that are characteristic of music.

Four new technologies and four clinical strategies will be provided to optimize hearing aids for music as well as for speech.  These technologies are designed to circumvent some problems associated with the analog-to-digital conversion process- a major weak point with modern hearing aids

Alison Stone
Training Manager, Oticon.

Dr Daniel Rowan MSc, PhD
Director of Programmes (Audiology) University of Southampton
