Striking the Right Balance: Uncovering the Best Minimal Test Battery for Hearing and Balance Assessment

This presentation will address the crucial need for a minimal test battery in audiology clinics to effectively assess hearing and balance, regardless of the patient’s initial complaint. Drawing on over 30 years of clinical and research experience, the speaker will discuss the best practices for evaluating hearing, establishing norms, assessing middle ear function, cochlear health, auditory processing, and balance. While the focus will be on the adult population, the principles discussed can be adapted for pediatric patients. This presentation aims to provide valuable insights into optimizing audiological assessments for better patient outcomes.
