Happy New Year to you!
Here at HAFM HQ we’ve been busy reflecting on our conference, looking at some initial findings from the online survey, and drafting various documents, including a revision of our patient leaflet, and drafts of a practitioner leaflet, glossary of terms and stakeholder report.
We are interested to hear your reflections on the conference four months on, so if you have two minutes, please answer three short questions here.
Extension until August 2018
Numerous NHS Trusts across the country have expressed a desire to be involved in the HAFM research, and so we have secured an extension to the project (until the end of August) to be able to do this. We have just started working with 20 Trusts, including Aintree, Airedale, Birmingham, Durham and Darlington, Harrogate, Kingston, Manchester, Sheffield, South Tees, Southend, Sunderland, Tameside and Glossop, and Western Sussex to name a few! We are adding further sites this week. This is very exciting for us because it ensures that we can survey hearing aid users from all over the UK.
Working with the first N=1,000
We are currently analysing the first 1,000 responses to the online survey, and results summaries will be available in due course. Thanks to all who have taken the time to participate in this survey – your time is greatly appreciated.
If you know others who would be willing to complete the survey, do send on the link: http://tinyurl.com/musicandhearingaidssurvey
If you have any other reflections, or you would like to write a blogpost for our website, please do get in touch with us on firstname.lastname@example.org
