How can reflective practices help hearing care providers become mindful of the gap between the intention clinicians have to make appointments person-centered, and the reality of implementing person-centered care in daily clinical practice? What are the benefits of setting aside time to reflect? In this session, we will introduce self-development tools for analysis and reflective practice, including ethnographic videos and the Reflective Journal, which will help clinicians to understand their patients’ needs and preferences, as well as their own professional development needs, to improve the outcomes of appointments.
