After a hiatus, I’m happy to dust off the clinical research blog. The review this month is Munoz et al (2017) Effective Communication Behavior during Hearing Aid Appointments.
You may find this excerpt interesting: “A striking outcome was the significant reduction in personal speaking time of audiologists following a pre-training workshop. When the speaking time of both patients and audiologists were compared (audiologists dominated during pre-training) both were approximately equal after the workshop. Although speaking time was not explicitly stressed in the workshop, these findings suggest a reduction in audiologist verbal dominance after training, suggesting that the training positively impacted this counseling behavior.”
