HLAA is pleased to announce its partnership with the Ida Institute.
“The Ida Institute is renowned for excellence and HLAA is pleased to partner with them. We appreciate that they value the consumer perspective and look forward to bringing concerns of people with hearing loss to their experts who are creating resources and tools. I saw first-hand during the seminar, The Hearing Journey how important it was to hear from organizations like HLAA,” said Barbara Kelley, HLAA executive director.
The recent seminar The Hearing Journey: What Matters to You? was the first time people with hearing loss and representatives from a number of influential patient organizations, including HLAA, participated directly in an Ida innovation seminar, side by side with audiologists and opinion leaders within the field of hearing care.
The partnership is a component of Ida’s collaborative approach to person-centered hearing rehabilitation. It is also part of the institute’s new overall strategy to establish partnerships with key stakeholders in the field of hearing care, including leading patient associations, professional organizations, and universities around the world.
“The aim of these partnerships is to develop and promote a person-centered approach to hearing health care across all settings,” says Managing Director Lise Lotte Bundesen. “By partnering with various stakeholders in the field, we hope to extend our reach and identify new collaboration opportunities that will continue to transform hearing care worldwide.”
The Hearing Journey: What Matters to You? was held in Skodsborg, Denmark, October 14-16, 2017.
