The Role of DCFS Support for Children with Moderate to Severe Hearing Impairment, Yu.J

Background: Children born with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss face challenges in a world built around spoken language communications. Hearing loss often has a significant impact on educational progress through the school age years, which later affect their ability for employment. These children and their families have two options: total communications with signing and [...]

Communication and Noise in the Operating Room, Yu.J, Lippmann.E

Background: Communication serves as a central component to patient safety and efficiency in the operating room. Sentinel event data from The Joint Commission in 2013 identified failures of communication during surgery as one of the leading root causes of error and poor patient outcomes. Recent research on hearing-critical jobs has advocated for functional hearing assessment [...]
