Abstract [en]

PURPOSE:

Three questions are addressed: 1) What is Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) and why is it important for adults with hearing impairment? 2) What is the evidence about intervention options for adults who fail a hearing screening and are identified with hearing impairment? 3) What intervention options do adults choose when identified with hearing impairment for the first time?

METHODS:

The five steps of the EBP process are discussed in relation to a clinical question about whether hearing aids and communication programs reduce activity limitations and participation restrictions compared to no treatment for adults who fail a hearing screening and are identified with hearing impairment.

RESULTS:

Systematic reviews of the evidence indicate that both hearing aids and communication programs reduce activity limitations and participation restrictions for this population and are therefore appropriate options. A study is then described in which these options were presented to 153 clients identified with hearing impairment for the first time: 43% chose hearing aids, 18% chose communication programs and the remaining 39% chose not to take any action.

CONCLUSIONS:

EBP supports the offer of intervention options to adults who fail a hearing screening and are identified with hearing impairment.
