2018 EARLY HEARING DETECTION & INTERVENTION MEETING
In its 17th year, the EHDI Meeting has built a strong reputation for bringing together a wide variety of attendees including those who: work in state Early Hearing Detection and Intervention programs; assist in EHDI efforts on the federal level; provide screening, diagnostic and early intervention support at the state/ local level to young children with hearing loss and their families; champion Medical Home activities within each state; are parents of children with hearing loss; or are deaf or hard-of-hearing adults who are helping to expand opportunities for young children with hearing loss. EHDI Meeting participants will range from state and local programs to the federal level and from academics to families.
GOAL OF THE EHDI ANNUAL MEETING
The goal of the annual EHDI Meeting is to enhance the implementation of comprehensive state-based Early HearingDetection and Intervention (EHDI) programs. After participating in the meeting, participants will be better able to:
Identify and promote knowledge and awareness of successful strategies for implementing comprehensive state-based EHDI programs that include screening, audiologic diagnostic evaluation, early intervention, medical home, reporting, tracking, surveillance, loss to follow-up issues, data integration, and other related surveillance components.
Interpret and describe current research and research methods related to EHDI.
Examine cultural competence of providers and assess their ability to work with children who are deaf or hard of hearing, their families, and communities.
Discuss the importance of enhancing and creating new and ongoing working relationships among federal agencies, non-profit organizations, state health departments and educational agencies, advocacy groups, families, and professionals.

The right to participate in the EHDI Annual Meeting is fundamental to ensuring open dialogue between all EHDI stakeholders. The Meeting Organizers encourage respectful dialogue as a key element of participation among all meeting participants. The EHDI Annual Meeting opposes the disruption of any meeting sessions or events that results in the inability for dialogue to take place.
The EHDI Annual Meeting reserves the right to withdraw the name badge, and therefore deny access, to participants who do not adhere to these Principles of Participation.

Vestibular Rehabilitation: A Competency-Based Course
This intense, evidence-based, six-day course is designed for physical therapists, occupational therapists and MDs with experience treating patients/clients with vestibular deficits. The course consists of lecture and laboratory sessions with additional self-study sessions. All participants will be expected to demonstrate assessment skills to the faculty including: oculomotor examination with emphasis on the identification normal and abnormal eye movements, balance and gait assessment with identification of fall risk, and functional assessments. Participants will also be expected to demonstrate appropriate treatment procedures for BPPV affecting posterior, anterior and horizontal canals for both cupulolithiasis and canalithiasis, for unilateral and bilateral peripheral vestibular disorders, and for central vestibular disorders including traumatic brain injury and stroke. Emphasis will be on utilizing assessment results to develop an effective treatment plan. The course will include written, video and practical examinations. This course is NOT designed to be an introductory course, and it is strongly recommended that participants have experience treating people with vestibular deficits and/or have completed a previous vestibular course.
Two certificates are given in this course – one for attendance and one for achievement. It is our intent that the certificate of achievement signifies that, at the time the course was given, the student demonstrated proper performance of certain skills (based on practical exams) and understood basic information (based on two written exams) related to vestibular rehabilitation. The granting of the achievement certificate in no way certifies that the student retains those skills and knowledge or applies them appropriately in the future.

Value-Based Health Care and The Future of Surgical Services
David C. Chin, MD, MBA
Learn about the major federal and state health care policies that are driving value-based purchasing of health care. David Chin will share his insights on the key financial forces in the current health care system and their implications for the business of surgical services and what you need to consider to remain profitable.
Truths and Myths about Teams: Transforming Our Thinking about Competence
Lorelei Lindgard, PhD
The health care professionals community has embraced the notion of “expert teams” as critical to its clinical and educational mandates. But our conventional emphasis on individual competence is ill-suited to training and assessing teamwork. Using stories of clinical teamwork, this presentation describes some paradoxical truths and persistent myths about health care teamwork, and introduces the concept of “collective competence” as a way of making sense of both.
Disruptive Innovation in Health Care: How Innovation is Driving Surgical Efficiency, Safety, Waste, and is Now the New Epicenter in Health Care
There are Four Future Shifts that will affect the “health care ecosystem” in a very big way. In fact, the shifts will determine the success or failure of both health care business and clinical models. These shifts include Disruptive Innovation, Consumerization, Connection Architecture, and Digital Disruption. The best hospitals and clinics are leveraging Innovation Best Practice, Patient Experience (PX) Design, and a wide range of enabling technologies to drive efficiencies and operational excellence while concurrently delivering world-class surgical quality, throughput, and efficiency. The best organizations in health care are leveraging innovative best practice and future-casting activities; future-proof their enterprise. Learn how to apply new best practices to drive growth, efficiencies, and practice success. This program will also provide key insights as to the future trajectory of supply, surgery, and the delivery of health care in a time of consumerization.
