Aural Rehabilitation: Achieving Functional Outcomes
Already an ASHA Learning Pass subscriber?
There has been a renewed interest in the provision of aural rehabilitation (AR) services as part of patient-centered hearing health care. Aural rehabilitation is a holistic approach to the management of hearing loss that may include patient education, fitting of devices, and auditory training exercises. Although audiologists may recognize the benefits of comprehensive AR, questions may remain about how to measure functional outcomes of these services. This course reviews functional outcome assessments for aural rehabilitation and how to incorporate these measures into everyday practice to enhance patient success.
You will be able to:
barriers to outcome assessment
the benefits of assessing functional outcomes in AR
how to incorporate outcome assessment in daily practice
This course is part of a series—Hearing Loss: Risks and Solutions in a Complex World—that explores various dimensions of audiology public health and how audiologists across settings can incorporate cutting-edge solutions into practice.
