Self-efficacy has been found to have a positive relationship with quality of life. Measures of audiologic self-efficacy in patients with cochlear implants (CI) are lacking. This study utilized the newly developed Cochlear Implant Skills Review (CISR) as a measure of device knowledge and skill to assess CI users’ self-efficacy. This study evaluated the relationship in CI users’ CISR scores and self-reported quality of life utilizing the Hearing Handicap Inventory for the Elderly (HHIE) and Nijmegen Cochlear Implant Questionnaire (NCIQ).
