Family Centered Care for Adults: How to make it happen 
Phonak recently convened a select group of hearing healthcare experts to provide evidence-based recommendations on how to better engage family members in audiologic care. During this session, members of this group will discuss  how moving from a site-of-lesion focus to a family-centered model in hearing healthcare increases the value of our service. Benefits of this model (for the patient, family, clinician and business), as well as recommendations for implementing family-centered care throughout the hearing remediation process will be shared.
