ADVANCED DIAGNOSTIC AUDIOLOGY 1: OBJECTIVE ASSESSMENT TECHNIQUES IN AUDIOLOGY

AUD5ADA

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject you will learn about concepts and procedures used in objective measurements of hearing and site-of-lesion testing in audiology. Through lectures and workshops, you will learn about the origin of otoacoustic emissions and acoustically evoked potentials of the auditory pathway, including electrocochleography, auditory brainstem responses, middle and late latency potentials, and auditory steady state responses. Building on this theoretical knowledge, you will be taught skills in assessing otoacoustic emissions and auditory evoked potentials, and integrating the results of these objective techniques with behavioural tests used in audiological evaluations.

Attendance at practical workshopsHurdle: Attendance at practical workshops is a hurdle requirement in order to accumulate the clinical skills required for professional accreditation. If, for extenuating circumstances that are consistent with the University's Special Consideration policy , students are unable to complete required clinical hours, alternative arrangements will be negotiated.
