Tools in action

Using Tools in the Clinic

National Health Service, Nottingham, UK

The Nottingham UK audiology services team introduced the Ida Motivation Tools into their consultations over the course of three days in 2012. They found that the tools provide a valuable framework that taps into client needs and motivations more readily than a standard history.

Watch audiologist Naomi Russell use the tools with a client and reflect on her experience.

Managers' Reflection

After each day of using the Motivation Tools, the Nottingham audiology team reflected on their experiences.

The group realized that elements of the client history could be replaced with the Ida Motivation Tools without detriment to the client or creating additional time constraints.
