Remote Care

Telemedicine for adults with cochlear implants in the UK: empowering patients to manage their own hearing healthcare

We are very focussed on caring for patients in the way that suits them best. This can involve remote care. Research shows that empowering people to manage their own care at home results in better long-term outcomes. At the University of Southampton Auditory Implant Service, we want to make the cochlear implant care pathway person-centred and provide a more efficient service.

The lead staff member in this is Dr Helen Cullington. She is also involved in the BEARS virtual reality project for children with bilateral cochlear implants.
