The Glasgow Hearing Aid Benefit Profile (GHABP) has been derived, optimized, and verified as an instrument suitable for application in the context of the evaluation of the efficacy and effectiveness of rehabilitative services for hearing-impaired adults. [...] Key Method The profile produces scales of preintervention disability, handicap, reported hearing aid use, reported benefit, satisfaction, and residual disability, obtained over a combination of prespecified listening circumstances and those nominated by…Expand
Subjective measures of hearing aid benefit and satisfaction in the NIDCD/VA follow-up study.
TLDR
Although understanding speech in noise or in group situations continues to be problematic, subjects reported wearing their hearing aids almost all of the time in both easy and difficult listening situations.
Tailoring Hearing Aid and Rehabilitative Interventions to Listeners' Disabilities and Priorities
Background Audiology services for hearing-impaired listeners throughout the world share many common features independent of any particular mode of health care funding and delivery. Regrettably, one
Hearing-aid outcome measured following one month of hearing aid use by the elderly.
TLDR
Attempts to document the effectiveness and efficacy of hearing aids for elderly persons with impaired hearing will be most complete when assessing performance along all seven dimensions of hearing-aid outcome.
Psychosocial correlates of hearing aid adjustment.
TLDR
The Communication Profile for the Hearing Impaired (CPHI) results provide compelling evidence of hearing aid benefit.
Proposed norms for the Glasgow hearing-aid benefit profile (Ghabp) questionnaire
TLDR
There was a significant relationship between increasing perceived disability and increasing hearing loss as given by the better-ear audiometric average (BEA), and the lack of systematic changes in hearing-aid related responses shows room for improvement in the benefit afforded by amplification.
Factors affecting the use and perceived benefit of ITE and BTE hearing aids
TLDR
Variables significantly related to hearing aid choice, use and perceived benefit included ease of management, accuracy with which the NAL-R insertion gain target was achieved, earmould comfort and the type of hearing aid the client preferred initially.
Management of single-sided deafness with the bone-anchored hearing aid
TLDR
In SSD patients, the BAHA provides significant subjective benefits and improves speech understanding in noise and Qualitative subjective outcome measures demonstrated additional benefits.
Self-Report Outcome Measures for Adult Hearing Aid Services: Some Uses, Users, and Options
  • S. Gatehouse
  • Psychology, Medicine
    Trends in amplification
  • 2001
TLDR
Self-report measures of disability and handicap, and hence the benefits of intervention, now constitute an unassailable element in the authors' understanding of the consequences of impaired hearing and essential components for the evaluation and optimization of interventions designed to alleviate those deficits.
Detecting components of hearing aid fitting using a self-assessment-inventory
TLDR
The data indicate that extra-audiological factors might also play an important role in the success of hearing aid fitting, and disability and handicap reveal the highest values for speech in noise, whereas the aid-related factor shows the lowest values for this condition.
Is measured hearing aid benefit affected by seeing baseline outcome questionnaire responses?
TLDR
The data suggest that completion of follow-up questionnaires in either informed or blind format will have little impact on HHI responses, most likely because of the many other factors that combined to influence hearing aid outcome.

TLDR
The PHAP, a 66-item self-administered inventory that quantifies performance with a hearing aid in everyday life using both seven-score and four-score profiles, has been evaluated using groups consisting mainly of elderly hearing aid wearers having mild to moderate hearing impairments.

TLDR
It is concluded that the PHAB is best suited for group research: when used for individual subjects, thePHAB may not be sensitive enough to detect important differences between hearing aid conditions.
Hearing Aid Evaluation Based on Measures of Benefit, Use, and Satisfaction
TLDR
A comprehensive follow-up protocol was designed and utilized to assess benefit, use, and satisfaction from hearing aids and can provide considerable evaluative clinical information in a reasonable amount of time.
The Hearing Handicap Inventory for the Elderly as a measure of hearing aid benefit.
TLDR
A significant reduction in the perceived emotional and social effects of hearing impairment following 1 year of hearing aid use was revealed, and the reduction in perceived handicap was greater for the hearing aid users than for their spouses.
Pre-issue assessment and counselling as a component of hearing-aid provision.
TLDR
Evidence from Studies carried out in Manchester suggest that such a service considerably increases both use of and satisfaction with hearing aids.
Comparison of two questionnaires for patient-assessed hearing aid benefit.
TLDR
Two questionnaires, the Profile of Hearing Aid Benefit (PHAB) and the intelligibility Rating Improvement Scale (IRIS), were developed to measure self-assessed hearing aid benefit and the potential of each questionnaire was evaluated for clinical and research applications.

TLDR
This three-parameter approach provides a simple, relevant and useful way of assessing benefit from amplification which has application in both individual and group studies.
Components and Determinants of Hearing Aid Benefit
TLDR
The results suggest that both disability and hearing aid benefit may be divided into separate components having particular and separate relationships to predictor variables in terms of both auditory and nonauditory characteristics.

Results showed a significant improvement for all three measurements and indicated that improvement in word identification presented at conversational level was more related to self-reported hearing aid benefit than was improvement in speech reception threshold.
