Improving the implementation of family-centred care in adult audiology appointments: a feasibility intervention study

Objective: There is mounting evidence for implementing family-centred care (FCC) in adult audiology
services, however FCC is not typically observed in adult clinical practice. This study implemented an intervention to increase family member attendance and involvement within adult audiology appointments. Conclusion: The implementation of FCC in audiology clinics needs to be an ongoing, whole-of-clinic
approach, including staff in all roles. Increasing family member attendance at adult audiology appointments can lead to benefits to client satisfaction with service.
