Exploring the Effects of the Narrative Embodied in the Hearing Aid Fitting Process on Treatment Outcomes

As students, we are eager to refine our hearing aid fitting skills and to achieve optimal device settings. However, it is important to keep in mind that all hearing aid fitting sessions take place in a context; a patient’s perception of the clinical encounter can also affect the treatment’s success. This article examines how the narrative of a hearing aid fitting session can affect treatment outcomes, independent of the resulting device settings. In addition to refining our technical skills, we must remember to develop our professionalism, empathy, and quality of service. A positive patient-provider interaction combined with excellent technical skills will result in an optimal hearing aid fitting for each individual. – Kelly Jahn, Vanderbilt University (Au.D. Class of 2016)
