Professional Communication in Audiology is one of five texts planned within the Basic Audiometry component of the Core Clinical Concepts in Audiology Series. This book is designed to provide students of audiology and practicing clinicians with a global framework for understanding the role of communication in audiologic practice, as well as practical strategies for implementation of communication principles in a clinical setting.The introduction to the text describes the importance of communication skills to audiologic practice. This section highlights important aspects of communicating in a clinical setting, including forces affecting reporting guidelines, privacy considerations, and the use of electronic medical records. The next section provides readers with fundamental principles that provide a framework for critically thinking about communication. These universal principles can be applied as a model to all areas of clinical communication. The text then leads the readers through application of these principles in the two most common methods of clinical communication: talking and writing. These skills are discussed specifically in relation to clinical audiologic practice, in the realms of both diagnostic and audiologic intervention paradigms. Examples reflective of real-world encounters are provided. The text also provides abundant examples of audiologic reports that can be utilized as templates in audiologic practice.
