Cochlear implants can be life changing for clients with severe and profound hearing loss. But what if the client is hesitant to get a cochlear implant? And which clients are candidates for a cochlear implant? Audiologist Judith Bird, Head of Audiology and Emmeline Centre for Hearing Implants at Cambridge University Hospitals, NHS Foundation Trust UK, provides answers to this and further questions around cochlear implants in this episode of our podcast series. In her conversation with Bernadette Fulton, audiology manager for severe to profound hearing loss at Phonak HQ, Judith encourages audiologists to start discussing cochlear implants with their clients before their hearing aids fail.
