Abstract

<p>Objectives: In this study, to obtain basic data for clinical use of the evaluation scores on “The Questionnaire on Hearing 2002”, the changes in the scores recorded after hearing-aid fitting were examined.</p><p>Subjects: One hundred and sixty-three persons with mild or moderate hearing loss (69 men, 94 women; mean age, 64 y 5 m±15 y 8 m).</p><p>Methods: The evaluation scores recorded prior to and after hearing-aid fitting were compared retrospectively.</p><p>Results: Concerning the distribution of the evaluation scores, there was no significant differences among the 6 subscales prior to the hearing-aid fitting. After hearing-aid fitting, the evaluation scores were distributed as follows; on the 3 subscales of hearing disability, 80% showed a score of 1 or 2, on the 2 subscales of psychosocial effects, more than half showed a score of 1 or 2, and on the subscale of communication strategy, there was no change from the distribution prior to hearing-aid fitting.</p><p>Discussion: After hearing-aid fitting, the distribution of the evaluation scores showed different patterns among the subscales. This result suggests rehabilitative issues left even after hearing-aid fitting. Clinically, the profile drawn through linking the evalution scores on the 6 subscales serves as a visual indicator about the next issue that needs to be resolved.</p>
