ABR Refresher Course


Welcome to the ABR Refresher Workshop 2024!

We are delighted to bring together professionals from across the audiology profession for a day workshop. This workshop is aimed at establishing the uniformity in the practice of auditory electrophysiology in Nepal. We aim to provide participants with information from basic to recent advancements. This workshop is designed to be clinical oriented and we will make it as interactive as possible.

The other aim of the workshop is to start and establish a minimum standard of practice, which is uniform across Nepal. Uniformity in terms of settings used for recording to uniformity in processing the traces and reporting the obtained results. Finally we hope that the uniformity is passed on to the manufacturers, so the settings are default when the instruments are provided.

We are hoping to get the manufacturers involved during this workshop, so they can provide hands-on with their instruments during the workshop. We have not had any confirmations yet, but we will have ABR instrument, so we can practice some aspects hands-on on the day. A guide will be provided for what is expected to complete the hands-on.

We hope that this will provide a platform to discuss the latest developments, research, and clinical practices in auditory electrophysiology.

Join us for an informative and engaging experience of exploring the frontiers of audiology. We look forward to having you with us!
