Instructional Level: Intermediate
Using Participatory Design, focus groups were held to generate ideas for content for an internet-based program to compel adults with hearing loss to seek audiologic management. The content (testimonials and short, informational videos) was evaluated in validation studies consisting of participants from the target audience (adults who think they have a hearing problem). Content was rated in 5 areas (e.g. trustworthiness) and discussion was encouraged. Select content from the program will be shared as well as clinical implications.
