Investigating How Person-Centered Care Can Be Good for Clients and Business

We investigated common misconceptions about person-centered care to debunk common myths and show why clinics, dispensers, and hospitals can benefit from this approach.

As part of our investigation, we interviewed hearing care professionals in different countries and collected research on the benefits of person-centered care. 

Explore how we debunked the four myths below and learn how person-centered care can be a positive addition to your practice.

Too Much on Emotions

Will opening a discussion with the client lead to an outpouring of emotions that is difficult to manage? 

Clients Already Satisfied

Why should I take the time to implement a person-centered approach in my clinic if client needs are already being met?
