The Ida Institute
The Ida Institute is an independent, non-profit organization working to integrate person-centered care in hearing rehabilitation. We aim to enable people with hearing loss to take an active role in their care by expressing their needs and preferences.
Together with hearing care professionals around the world, we develop free tools and resources to strengthen the counseling process. Our website is a collaborative space where we invite you to share knowledge, information and resources.
This year, we are celebrating 10 years of collaboration with hearing care professionals around the world to advance person-centered care. The materials on this website are a direct result of this collaborative effort.
