Abstract

Teleaudiology is a potential solution for expanding access to hearing rehabilitation services and reducing the global burden of unaddressed hearing loss, a significant issue in public health raised by the WHO. In order to implement and translate this remote service-delivery into practice, investigations were made to determine equivalency of teleaudiology to face-to-face services, and to bridge the gap on the reliability of findings in audiology research. These investigations provided information on the low quality of the evidence available, showed similar outcomes between both services through an RCT study, and provided tools for improving consistency in methodology across studies in the field.
