Researchers have described a paradigm shift, in which the profession of audiology can move towards a more patient-centered approach (Hickson, 2012). In this article, I will describe a collaborative approach used at the Ida Institute to create patient-centered tools to promote this paradigm shift. I describe three counseling tools—A Possible Patient Journey, the Goal Sharing for Partners Strategy and the Living Well tool—as part of a collaborative self-management toolbox to promote patient-centered care in the clinic.
