Cochlear Limited the global leader in implantable hearing solutions, today announced a new podcast for hearing health professionals, Hearing Health Today. The podcast is an educational and thought-provoking series that explores the key challenges, trends and opportunities in the delivery of hearing care today, and into the future.
The fortnightly podcast will feature hearing health experts from across the globe. The first episode, titled ‘Staying Connected in Challenging Times,’ includes an exclusive interview with Professor Helen Cullington from the University of Southampton, UK, one of the world-leaders in tele-audiology. The episode explores what changes in practice have occurred with the COVID-19 pandemic, what professional tools exist in the hearing ‘space’ and what resources are available to help patients reduce their fear of isolation.
“One thing that we are finding is that maybe at this time when we’re all at home and we’re all isolated from our family and friends, hearing is even more important than ever,” said Prof. Cullington.
According to Dig Howitt, CEO & President of Cochlear, the goal of the podcast is to provide digestible, entertaining, and educational content.
“Podcasts have been growing in popularity for many years. In some countries, listeners spend an average of more than six hours a week listening to podcasts. Given the current global environment, a podcast is a great way for hearing health professionals to stay connected with developments in the field.”
–Dig Howitt, CEO & President of Cochlear
Nine episodes will feature in the series with a new episode released every two weeks. Healthcare professionals can listen to or subscribe to the podcast via Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Deezer, Stitcher, Pocketcast or Google Podcasts.
