The Ear Foundation has a lively and topical research programme. Our person-centred research arises from issues relevant to children & adults using any hearing technology, their families & professionals. Our research aims to better understand the effective use of hearing technologies in daily life, to support evidence-based practice and inform policy & commissioning decisions. We disseminate our research as widely as possible through reports, presentations, courses & online.
