The 5-Step Plan for Holistic Hearing Rehabilitation

The 5-step plan is an evidence- based model of best practice in adult hearing rehabilitation. Developed by a team of experts from Australia, the US and the UK, led by Barbra Timmer and reviewed in Audiology Now Issue 92, AudA is thrilled to offer members the opportunity to explore how to implement this service delivery model into daily clinical practice. The stream offers a deep dive into all the elements of the 5-step plan with case studies and group discussions, together with a focus on the counselling models outlined in Step 5. 

At the end of this session participants will be able to

1. Describe the 5 steps of the holistic hearing rehabilitation plan.

2. Understand how the 5 steps relate to their individual workplace and practice setting.

3. Create an implementation plan tailored to their clinic based on the 5-step plan for holistic hearing rehabilitation. 

4. Be ready to implement their custom plan created in this stream into their clinical practice
