Communicating with the Hearing Impaired for Patient Care Assistants training course

Communication is a necessary skill and the foundation for all of our social interactions, but it can become challenging when an individual has hearing impairment or loss. Effective communication with patients helps patient care assistants to help them feel less isolated and have an improved sense of wellbeing. Paying attention to another’s communication needs is one of the most important duties of the patient care assistant and can help to reduce or even remove barriers to effective communication with a patient. This course discusses the communication process, barriers to communication that result from hearing loss, and methods for effective communication with patients who have hearing loss.
