Counseling Training in AuD Programs: A Syllabi Review.
The Hearing Journal
Across many health professions, the important role of counseling within service delivery is increasingly recognized for playing a crucial part in the emotional and psycho-social well-being of patients. How providers communicate with patients and attend to the emotional aspects of care can influence treatment adherence (Med Care. 2009;47:826 http://bit.ly/2uRf3kj), retention and comprehension of information (Med Care. 1988;26:657 http://www.jstor.org/stable/3765489), and the development of trust within the relationship (PEC. 2015;98:1550 http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.pec.2015.06.019). Thus, gaining insight into how audiology graduate programs train students in counseling can guide future efforts to enhance preparation of audiologists in this area.
