At the Ida Institute, we understand person-centered care to be hearing care that is designed around the person with hearing loss. Person-centered care respects individual preferences and values, involves family, and reinforces shared decision making and goal setting.
Advancing Person-Centered Care
At Ida, we believe that understanding the whole person is key to successful hearing rehabilitation. We develop tools, materials and resources that help hearing care professionals deliver care based on the needs and life situations of their clients.
Our tools allow hearing care professionals to apply person-centered care in their daily practice. Others help people with hearing loss prepare for their appointments and manage hearing loss in daily life.
Each year, the Ida Institute provides funding for new research projects. Learn more about our previously accepted proposals and how to apply for a grant.
Ida receives input and advice from some of the leading academics and professionals in the world of hearing healthcare. Meet the experts who inform our work.
