    Title: What have I learned in my (45) years of trying?

    Presenter: Ruth Bentler, PhD

    Abstract: In my world of hearing aid technologies and patient outcomes, the past four decades have seen immeasurable progress. Yet, sometimes it seems we aren’t really a lot closer to achieving the goal of achieving measurable benefit and satisfied users than we were when I began in this field. In this overview presentation, I hope to convince you that for those of us who choose audiology as a career path, the ride is a good one, albeit without a clear destination.
