The first step when someone is interested in a study is to contact us, either via phone or email. We will review the study criteria to see if the person is eligible for the study. In many cases, we may schedule a screening appointment to confirm eligibility.
After reviewing and signing the consent form, we will take a detailed hearing health history, complete a hearing test, and perform a cognitive screening. Some studies may have additional screening requirements. Most studies involve a listening task. For example, a participant might wear earphones or hearing aids while listening to speech in noise.
