AUD 895 - Investigative Audiology


4 weeks/1 credit hour

The exceptionally broad use of hearing in modern cultures and societies gives rise to diverse questions from many quarters. Industries may inquire about the protection of worker hearing. Manufacturers are interested in product liability control and will ask if their products are dangerously loud. Various jurisdictions are interested in curbing community (environmental) noise. Litigants choose to proffer claims for hearing impairment due to various alleged causes. Personal safety depends a great deal upon the ear and hearing, so we may be asked to evaluate acoustical warning signals. A well-prepared audiologist will know how to deal with these, and other, related questions. An additional structure within this module involves the legal process including discussions of appropriate clinical work ups of hearing impairment claims; testimony styles; and techniques of value to the testifying witness.
