Overview

Whether you're a graduate student, hearing instrument specialist, or clinical audiologist, the Second Edition of Fitting and Dispensing Hearing Aids aims to provide you with the latest in concise and practical information across a broad spectrum of topics. Its 12 chapters, sequenced to match the patient's journey through a clinical practice, are packed with the latest commercial innovations in hearing aids, patient-related outcome measures, and counseling skills. Experienced clinicians will also find the updated chapters on help-seeking behavior and hearing aid features and benefits to be valuable to their continued professional development.

Hearing aid dispensing has always been a technology-driven profession, heavily dependent on the expertise, thoughtfulness, and good judgment of the professional. Over the past few years, even as technology has continued to evolve at breakneck speed, these skills have become more relevant then ever in the delivery of high-quality patient care, especially to the rapidly aging Baby Boomer population.

Fitting and Dispensing Hearing Aids, Second Edition, authored by two of the industry's leading authorities on adult amplification and audiology practice management, is required reading for those studying to obtain their hearing aid dispensing license or audiology or speech pathology students looking for the latest in dispensing and fitting hearing aids in a succinct, entertaining format. Because each chapter is written around a specific theme, like wine tasting, travel, baseball, country music, and more, you will find this textbook is actually fun to read!
