How many affiliates does your SIG have?
SIG 7 has 250 affiliates.
Is there an important, new issue surrounding your SIG’s subject matter right now? Highlight a timely event or trend.
There is a growing interest in soliciting personal narratives from patients as a way to learn more about patient-specific needs. Personal narratives can help patients put health care information into meaningful content and may guide their decision-making process. For clinicians, narratives can provide insight into what our patients see as valuable in the treatment process and help to ground us in patient-centered care.
What upcoming events related to or sponsored by your SIG should everyone know about? Chats, conferences or convention events?
We don’t have anything scheduled at this point. But I recommend the June 2015 Hearing Rehabilitation Foundation meeting in Florida, where clinicians and researchers involved in aural rehabilitation meet and exchange idea with colleagues from around the world, and discuss areas of mutual interest and possible collaboration.
Which of your recent Perspectives articles is a must-read for CSD professionals, and why?
Perspectives on Aural Rehabilitation and Its Instrumentation offers many excellent papers for Sig 7 affiliates. A must-read from 2014 is a pair of papers by Anthony DiLollo and colleagues. The first paper, in our May 2014 issue, highlights the importance of personal narratives in patient-centered care. The second paper, in our November 2014 issue, provides a framework for incorporating narratives into counseling patients with hearing loss and their families.
