Person-Centered Hearing Network

Building on the successes of our partnerships, the Ida Institute established the Person-Centered Hearing Network (PCHN) in 2019. The network works on concrete projects to further person-centered care (PCC) in hearing care around the world. The PCHN allows members to meet and exchange knowledge and ideas that reflect the hearing and healthcare systems in their respective countries.

Definition of person-centered care
