In a program grant from the Swedish Council for Working Life and Social Research we are investigating the use of modern information technology in hearing rehabilitation in a broad sense. We use the Internet in this research when we study hearing impaired persons from when the loss is detected to whe intervention is implemented. In the research we intend to survey online resources, implement selfscreening both in terms of self-assessments and actual hearing screening on the Internet, use online cognitive tests, use the Internet for medical support system aimed to be integrated in health care, test if motivational interviewing methods can be used to facilitate the decision process when seeking treatment, develop and test online counselling for hearing impaired persons, use more open-ended qualitative methods to probe the experiences of acceptance versus experiential avoidance, and finally develop and test web resources for significant others (e.g. parents of children, adult children of older adults without access to the Internet). The program is divided into nine subprojects that are at different stages of their execution. This presentation will give an overview of the activities and outcomes so far in the FAS-IT program.
