Ethnographic films

Our ethnographic films depict real-life situations at the clinic and in the homes of people with hearing loss. They provide a unique insight into audiological practice and the challenges hearing impaired individuals face in their daily lives. The films are classified according to the stages in the Patient Journey tool.

The films' subjects reflect on their hearing loss in a way that is often uncommon during a typical consultation session. Hence, the films offer a valuable "outside in" peek into each person's and communication partner's perspective on hearing loss. The films are produced by Ida anthropologists in close collaboration with audiologists and their clients. Please note that the films are for educational purposes only.

The films are organized by theme. Click a box below to begin.
