Research Activity Summary
I have been engaged in a variety of both quantitative and qualitative research over the years. My primary focus, however, has been to advocate the research of others through conceptual articles and textbooks to move research into action within clinical practice. Review of my e-professional page provides greater detail on these endeavors.
Current research focuses on the establishment of a time-sensitive, clinically-efficacious means to provide communication training to patients with hearing loss and their primary communication partners couched within the standard three to five clinical visits that comprise a hearing aid consultation and fitting. Preliminary findings of this work can be viewed on theAcademy of Rehabilitative Audiology website.
A number of students past and current have worked under my direction on a variety of studies and projects related to hearing loss management including Trisha Billger, Elizabeth Burlage, Eileen Cremering, Jessica Forshey, Casey Molloy, Ryan Johnson, Amy Locaputo, Carissa Maatman, Ryan Mills, Ruchi Sharma, Molly Simpson, and Sally Vollner.
