Leave a Comment

During the Christmas period and January 2018 we will share a number of videos of Dr Jan de Laat, a medical physicist and audiologist in The Netherlands. Dr Jan de Laat was one of the speakers at the Clinical Conference in the Netherlands in October 2017.

In this video series, Dr de Laat will share his experience on hearing impairment and will give you advise on how you, as a professional, can deal with customers with these conditions. The videos will be interesting for both audiologists and optometrists, as he starts every video by clearly explaining what the different conditions actually are and continues with some very handy tips and tricks for hearing aid dispensers.

Some of the topics Dr Jan de Laat talks about are tinnitus, hyperacusis and SSD. Especially for our members from The Netherlands, Dr de Laat has added two Dutch videos on developments within the Dutch market regarding ‘Hoorprotocol 2.0’ and ‘StAR guidelines’.

Keep an eye on the website, as we will share the videos one by one over the coming weeks. To view the videos you need to be logged in as a member. If you have any questions about the videos, please email us at greenclub@specsavers.com.

Enjoy the videos!
