Study to increase participation of hearing-impaired individuals in research studies

Researchers at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio have found that hearing-impaired individuals are routinely excluded from academic studies- and they would like to change that.

Professor Shirley Moore at Case Western’s Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing (FPB) is leading the 2-year study. The study’s goal is to give researchers the ability to easily include hearing-impaired individuals in their studies.

Researchers intend to develop technology that facilitates participation of hearing-impaired individuals in studies and also to train researchers on how to conduct more inclusive projects in the future.
