In this episode of our podcast series based on the new guidelines for best practice in the audiological management of severe and profound hearing loss, we are looking into the nature of severe to profound hearing loss with guest speaker Laura Turton, a clinical audiologist and editor of the guidelines. She talks about the causes of this degree of hearing loss as well as what severe and profound hearing loss means for those affected. Laura also discusses the importance of a person-centered approach of audiological management for this target group and elaborates on her definition of a deaf identity in her conversation with Bernadette Fulton, audiology manager for severe to profound hearing loss at Phonak HQ in Switzerland.
