Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation, Third Edition is an advanced textbook for doctoral level audiology students that focuses solely on adults with a completely international perspective. It is the only advanced text to meet the need for the high level of preparation required for doctoral level training. It is also an essential resource for practicing clinicians looking for a complete reference on the latest techniques and technologies.
With ever changing technology and new methodologies in client care, the third edition of Adult Audiologic Rehabilitation is a critical resource to audiology education. The book covers definitions of audiologic rehabilitation, an overview of the area, psychosocial impact of hearing loss, assessment strategies, current technologies, treatment methodologies, e-technologies, research needs, and special issues in audiologic rehabilitation. It has been deliberately structured to move the reader from introduction, to specific details of the specialty of audiologic rehabilitation, to providing insights into characteristics of this patient population, and thence to a framework for assessment and treatment of the impact of hearing loss.
Thoroughly updated, this edition includes eight new chapters and revisions to nineteen chapters that include updated content, references, figures and tables. New topics include:
- Hearing Health-Seeking Behavior
- Social Factors in Hearing Aids
- Improving Patient Adherence
- Multimedia Educational Resources
- Family-Centered Care
- Patient Narratives in Audiology
- E-health and M-health for Audiologic Rehabilitation
- Community Outreach
Customizable PowerPoint lecture slides for instructors are accessible on a PluralPlus companion website.
