In an international web-based study performed by Oticon, there was an “equal split between those who were experienced hearing aid users and those who suspected they had a hearing loss but had not formally done anything about it.” However, from these results only 17% of those who suspected they had a hearing loss felt they actually needed medical attention.
The purpose of this study is to see the patient’s perspective of hearing loss and what their needs are so the audiologist can better understand the needs of a patient and their reasons for waiting to seek medical aids.
