The Ida Institute is excited to be progressing with our Vision 2020 projects. We’ve now held the initial virtual meetings about the Tele-health work stream of our process. The first stage of this process looked at developing a small, flexible model of potential best practices for tele-health in audiology.
Ida staff presented a workshop on supporting patient involvement to a group of 15 audiology graduate students at Lund University in Lund, Sweden, this week. Senior Audiologist Melanie Gregrory, audiologist Anne Mette Jeppesen, and anthropologist Hans Henrik Philipsen presented different tools, organized activities, and showed different ethnographic films to the group. Participants were taught the Motivational, Communication Partner, and Living Well tools.
The Ida Institute is very excited to be featured in two articles in the latest issue of ENT and Audiology News magazine.
The first article is by Berth Danermark at the Audiological Research Centre at Örebro University in Örebro, Sweden. Dr. Danermark is a former Ida advisory board member and former participant at an Ida Seminar. His article focuses on patient centered care in audiology and what factors allow or prevent audiologists from implementing these approaches in their practices.
We are an independent, non-profit organization that aims to foster a better understanding of the human dynamics of hearing loss.
We share and co-create knowledge and tools with hearing care professionals to help them open communication with patients and better address their needs.
We are funded through a grant from the Oticon Foundation.
Share experiences in the clinic and discuss hot-button topics with other hearing care professionals in the Ida community.
By sharing knowledge, we can work together to create a global community for patient-centered hearing healthcare.
