It is an honor to be nominated as Member-at-Large to the Board of Directors of the American Academy of Audiology. I believe that the audiology profession will face considerable difficulties in the coming years. As a profession, we must develop a clear path to address these issues, as the medical environment only becomes more complicated. In the forefront is reimbursement. We have experienced a significant reduction in payment, clearly impeding our ability to sustain departments as well as private clinics. We must think outside-the-box in order to lessen the impact, and position ourselves as key players in audiological health care. I believe that the key pieces to improvement in reimbursement, as well as overall support to the profession, include
- The continued development of evidence-based practice,
- The continued support of externship training sites to academic programs, and
- The recruitment of young scientists to hearing/balance research.
I believe that the audiology profession has some considerable hurdles to overcome. We must take ownership of our clinical evidence and improve our ability to appropriately manage our patients. The current health-care environment will require us to work together to creatively position ourselves as the go-to professionals for hearing and balance care.
