A full chapter is devoted to evidence-based practice and provides tools for use in clinical decision-making. The second section focuses on technology with informative chapters on hearing aids, cochlear implants, and assistive hearing technology. The final section covers the effects of and treatments for hearing impairment across the lifespan using process-driven, patient- and family-centered philosophies.
