Cochrane Corner: interventions to improve hearing aid use in adult auditory rehabilitation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This “Cochrane Corner” will be a recurring feature in the journal that highlights systematic reviews relevant to audiology, with invited commentary to aid clinical decision making. This first instalment features the Cochrane review “Interventions to Improve Hearing Aid Use in Adult Auditory Rehabilitation,” published in 2016. In their review, Barker et al identified 37 randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and concluded that there is low-quality evidence using self-management support and complex interventions (support plus delivery system design) in adult auditory rehabilitation. The review highlights the need for well-conducted studies in this area.
