Defining patient-centred outcomes to measure success in hearing rehabilitation with clients and professionals

A variety of outcome measures are currently used for the assessment of hearing rehabilitation. However, there is to date no consensus about which outcome measures should be used, when they should be applied, and how they should be collected. This study aimed to seek views and consensus from a range of key stakeholders to define which standardised client-centred outcome measures should be used, when they should be used, and how they should be delivered, in a national Australian publicly-funded hearing rehabilitation scheme. In addition, the study aimed to identify current and future potential mechanisms and systems to standardise the collection of data and reporting of outcomes, to enable comparison across clients and hearing service providers.
