The Professional Supervisor workshop is being held in conjunction with the AudiologyNOW! Conference, which is sponsored by the American Academy of Audiology (AAA), as a post- conference workshop. This all-day event includes pre-read material, the Hearing Conservation Manual 5th Edition, continental breakfast, and lunch.
The Professional Supervisor of the Audiometric Monitoring Program© (PS/A) Workshop is an intermediate-level, full-day course. It emphasizes the real-world application of audiology expertise as encountered in occupational settings.
Lectures review the current literature and practice guidelines. Instructors present employee case studies for participant problem-solving, critical thinking and small-group discussion.
Case presentations discuss PS responsibilities, guidelines for managing problem audiograms and determination of work-relatedness.
This workshop is intended for audiologists, physicians (MD, DO) and otolaryngologists who supervise and review audiometric testing from hearing loss prevention (HLP) programs.
Any hearing conservation-related professionals are also invited to participate in this course; however, are not eligible to take the certification exam.
Participants should have prior understanding of governmental regulations in and components of hearing loss prevention programs and interest, and/or experience in making work-related determinations for occupational noise-induced hearing loss.
