Abstract or Summary
  • The central purpose of this study was to examine physicians' knowledge of and attitudes toward hearing aids. This study was conducted with 71 general practitioners affiliated with Scarborough General Hospital in Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. Attitude was measured by a 5-point Likert-type scale developed for the study. Knowledge was measured through a multiple choice instrument also developed for the study. Regression analysis and comparisons of the means of subgroups were utilized for statistical analysis of the data. Selected conclusions of the study were: 1) Physicians were found to have positive general attitudes toward hearing aids, 2) physicians were found to have poor prescriptive attitudes toward hearing aids, and 3) no significant relationships were determined among level of knowledge, prescriptive attitude, or general attitude. Selected recommendations were: 1) Physicians require inservice training pertaining to prescriptive practices of hearing aids; methods for providing training were recommended; 2) medical schools should include more extensive training in hearing impairment and hearing aids; and 3) a replication of study should be conducted based upon a different sample population.
