We have two types of CIICA EVENTS: CIICA LIVE and CIICA CONVERSATIONS.
CIICA LIVE events have presentations from our global Community Members on a specific topic that has been suggested, and discussion is encouraged in the chat room. They last 90 minutes, are captioned and the presentations are available afterward for those who missed them or would like to share them.
CIICA CONVERSATIONS are for small groups to discuss a suggested topic for a short time: one hour. The conversations are facilitated by some of our Community Members, captioned and the summary of the issues which emerged are published on the website afterward.
Below you can see the forthcoming Events and those which have already taken place. Do have a look at previous topics that interest you – and share the presentations and the summaries.
The presentations at this CIICA LIVE event will explore the concept and provision of Person and Family Centered Care in CI Services, following on from our Conversations, and the input to our global survey. What does it look like from the point of view of users, families and providers?
We will discuss our communication challenges in public places and how we manage in specific scenario such as cafes, restaurants, concerts, conferences and other places you can think of! This conversation is open to young adults, 18-30 who use CI.
This CIICA CONVERSATION on the Living Guidelines is the fourth in the series; the Conversation with 25 participants from 9 countries, explored the outcome measures which are important to CI users. What is important for your Quality of Life? The Conversation influenced the recommendations of the Living Guidelines.
Person-centred care features in many health care services - what about CI services? What are the key features of person-centred care? What is your experience? This one hour Conversation, led by Kris English and Shari Eberts discussed what it could look like.
There were over 1000 responses to our global survey of adults with CI - what services would you like and what are you getting? This inspiring CIICA LIVE event explored some of the issues emerging from your responses: funding, lifelong services, decision making, peer groups and counselling services. PDFs and Captioned videos available now.
This inspiring session was chaired by Bowen Tang, CI User, and President of the International Federation of Hard of Hearing Young People, IFHOHYP. We heard from young CI users from around the globe about their experiences of the challenges and opportunities at home, school, higher education and work. SEE THE PDFs AND CAPTIONED PRESENTATIONS.

Although most forms of ear and hearing problems can be effectively managed with modern technology, tinnitus remains an invisible unaddressed burden to many. Led by Robert Mandara (Vice-President, EURO-CIU), we focused on people’s thoughts and experiences on all aspects of tinnitus in relation to CI. READ THE SUMMARY HERE.
This second Conversation on the Living Guidelines Project was chaired by Leo De Raeve, with Helen Cullington and Michal Luntz. The Conversation focussed on how we can use the Guidelines for advocacy work and what resources we need to do this.
