Factors Associated with Hearing Aid Adoption

Course: #33209Level: Intermediate1 Hour 49 Reviews

To date, research investigating hearing aid adoption has focused on intra-individual factors (i.e., variables related to a given individual). In contrast, comparatively less emphasis has been devoted to understanding how inter-individual (i.e., interpersonal) or contextual factors (i.e., situational) factors contribute to patient decision making regarding hearing aid adoption. This presentation will outline theoretical factors relevant to improve our understanding as well as be exposed to recent large-scale research studies in support of this view.
