Research In Profile

Current research from the Connected Hearing Healthcare Lab focuses on the use of patient-orientated research to engage clinicians, patients, families, and community partners. As part of an international, multi-site project designed to help close the virtual care research-to-practice gap, implementation sciences tools were used to facilitate action-oriented, dynamic, and iterative processes in research; resulting knowledge products include a co-created clinical practice guideline specific to the delivery of virtual hearing aid care. Patient-orientated research efforts have also included industry partnerships, guiding research and development around pediatric- and adult-focused mobile hearing solutions, real-world outcome measurement (EMA), and mixed methods research.
