“Critical Social Approaches to Supporting Person-Centered Care in Audiology”

The goal of the project is to derive a deep understanding of the barriers to developing and maintaining person-centered care in the audiological context.  In this project a poststructuralist grounded theory methodology will be used to develop an empirical theory that describes how audiologists develop and maintain person-centered care in challenging systems of practice. The theory will be used to develop an educational approach to support clinicians in engaging critical awareness and change that enables compassionate, person-centered care.
