We are concerned about hearing and communication difficulties among patients during this time of the coronavirus pandemic and increased use of personal protective equipment (PPE).
We created a survey to begin to understand the issues that you are facing. With this information, we intend to advocate for better policies and resources to overcome barriers and obstacles for those with hearing difficulty in healthcare settings.
We invite you to take our Qualtrics® survey which will take about 8-10 minutes to complete. You will also help our geriatrics fellow advance in research!
