Auditory Implant Service

Carers of older people with CI needed

Can you help?

Demonstration with patient

Julie Brinton, former Director of USAIS, has written a training course about how to communicate effectively and troubleshoot cochlear implants for the carers of older CI users. The project is now at the stage where she needs some carers to look at the course and provide feedback. The carers might work in a residential setting or with someone in their own home, the key thing is that they are looking after someone with a cochlear implant.

If you are, or know someone who is a carer and might be willing to help, please ask them to contact Julie Brinton either by email: juliecbrinton@gmail.com or phone: 07505185569

Alternatively, please contact Coral Abraham at the University of Southampton Auditory Implant Service by emailing AIS.Training@soton.ac.uk or calling 02380 593522
