Inspired by Ida

A benchmark of quality for person-centered care

Inspired by Ida is a program that enables hearing care professionals to enhance their person-centered skills and gives them practical tips to apply them in daily practice.

The Inspired by Ida badge helps people with hearing loss to identify clinics that offer high-quality hearing care focused on their individual needs.

To become Inspired, clinicians complete the two popular training courses ‘Getting Started with Person-Centered Care’ and ‘Client Engagement and Ida Motivation Tools’ and sign a code of ethics underscoring their commitment to person-centered hearing care.
