Expansion of Cochlear Implant Candidacy Criteria

Although the BC Adult Cochlear Implant Program has not received any increases in funding, the cochlear implant team at St. Paul's Hospital is currently reviewing the possibility of expanding the existing cochlear implant candidacy criteria to help a greater number of BC adults who can benefit from cochlear implants to access them.  Please discuss with your ENT if you may benefit from a referral to the cochlear implant clinic.
