Patient-Centered Care

Audiologists are slowly being viewed as integral members of interdisciplinary health care teams bringing a holistic perspective to the diagnostic and management process. Moving away from a physician centered approach to patient care with a focus on the “ear”, to a patient centered approach wherein we are concerned with the patient’s unique understanding of his/her illness, has been an integral part of the evolution of audiologists. The need for a paradigm shift away from the delivery of health care based in the medical model has been explicit in the medical literature since the late 20th Century. A driving force behind “patient-centered care” was Harvey Picker, Ph.D, founder of the Picker Institute, who pioneered the concept that outstanding medical care must include sensitivity to a patient’s personal beliefs and comfort level.
