Division 7 leadership is proud to bring you Perspectives. In this issue, Theresa Chisolm and Harvey Abrams examine the use of disease-specific Health-related Quality of Life measures, such as the HHIE, and generic HRQoL measures, such as the Sickness Inventory Profile, to provide information about the impact of hearing loss on quality of life. As our well-educated baby boomers age, these measures will become more important in demonstrating efficacy to consumers and other professionals.
In her case study review, Anita Haravon describes the importance of ALD use in a contemporary situation: participation in a tour group to another country. Her article reminds us that our services go beyond the clinic walls and can change the way people participate in those activities. Then, Barbara Weinstein points out that only 25% of individuals with hearing impairment use hearing aids. Using the Stages of Change model, she examines what it will take to change that model and what we as practitioners can do to change that statistic.
