15 TH CONFERENCE OF THE FRENCH COMPANY OF AUDIOLOGY

FRIDAY 13 & SATURDAY 14 DECEMBER 2019, LYON


FSA Congress

PERIPHERAL OR CENTRAL? HOW IN THE FUTURE DOES NOT IGNORE A HEARING DISORDER.

 

Dear friends of the FSA,

It’s a great pleasure to welcome you to the 15th conference of the French Society of Audiology. True to form, the scientific committee has prepared a programme completely in line with current events in audiology. It is logically focused on understanding, exploring, and rehabilitating peripheral and central hearing loss in the context of the “ears” section of the “100% healthcare” reform. To be a full-fledged player in this reform, it is necessary to know how to perform speech-in-noise audiometry from 1st January, which will in effect open up the field for the diagnosis of disorders of the auditory neuropathy spectrum and central auditory processing disorders. What tests are available in French and how can we obtain them? What are their norms? At what deviation from the norm should we consider that the patient has an intelligibility-in-noise disorder making them eligible for a hearing aid? What are the WHO recommendations for detecting presbycusis? How can we explore central auditory processing such as spatial localisation or dichotic listening? These questions will be addressed in a resolutely practical way in nine workshops led by instructors experienced in performing all of these tests.

The conference will also be an opportunity to listen in plenary session to opinion leaders who have inspired the audiological rationale for the reform, either by directly performing hearing-in-noise tests or by revealing the unexplored mechanisms of hearing loss. In December, peripheral and central disorders are going to meet at the confluence of the Rhône and the Saône.

 

Wishing you an enjoyable conference,

Hung Thai-Van, President of the FSA
