Abstract

Hearing loss (both congenital and acquired), a common and potentially disabling condition across the lifespan, represents a public health issue and was thus addressed in HealthyPeople 2010 and proposed for HealthyPeople 2020 (http://www.healthypeople.gov). While reimbursement for telerehabilitation is not yet robust and the practice may be limited by current state licensure guidelines, telerehabilitation is a viable current and future practice option. A recent federal grant program provided funding for nearly all 50 US states to develop telepractice-based hearing services for infants and newborns living in isolated communities. It is therefore incumbent upon university training programs to include telerehabilitation options in their audiology training curricula. This presentation reviews the current state-of-the-art in audiology-based telerehabilitation, and then presents elements of a curriculum developed in concert with the multi-disciplinary team associated with the NIDRR funded Rehabilitation Research Engineering Center (RERC) in Telerehabilitation (Grant #H133E040012) at the University of Pittsburgh. The RERC employs a portal-based infrastructure that can support audiologic tele-evaluation, tele-education, tele-supervision, tele-consultation. Its goals are to with goals to advance research, training, and education to benefit consumers with disabilities.
