Patient Journey

A Patient Journey maps the typical stages a person goes through from before they recognize their hearing loss until they learn to manage it. It gives students and clinicians a better understanding of their clients’ experiences and their path to rehabilitation.

What are the benefits?

  • Get a holistic understanding of the hearing loss experience
  • Learn to counsel based on a client’s specific stage in their journey
