The theme for these articles is using technology to enhance aural rehabilitation for adults with hearing loss. Manchaiah introduces the issues related to direct-to-consumer hearing devices. Major topics include important definitions, a summary of the literature, and discussion of risks and benefits associated with the use of direct-to-consumer devices by adults with hearing loss. Olson and colleagues summarize current mobile apps for auditory training designed for adult learners. Mobile apps for smartphones and tablets were reviewed for their content, usability, and potential clinical applications as supplements to aural rehabilitation outside of the clinical setting or in lieu of direct service delivery. Leavitt reviews considerations for individualized recommendations of wireless connectivity to link hearing aids or cochlear implants with other devices such as telephones, remote microphones, induction loops, infrared and personal FM systems. The article includes a process for decision-making and documentation of clinical data to support individualized recommendations. In summary, the articles address three areas of technology in aural rehabilitation for adults that are currently evolving and clinically applicable.

This issue of Perspectives focuses on the management of bothersome tinnitus. Fagelson provides a rationale for establishing interprofessional teams and referral networks and the need to prepare audiologists confident in counseling and interprofessional collaboration. Husain, Tai, and Finnegan briefly review literature on the emotional underpinnings of chronic bothersome tinnitus and the emerging evidence regarding therapies that focus on psychological or mental health by incorporating a “mindfulness” aspect, cognitive-behavioral methodology or an exercise regimen for the management of tinnitus symptoms. Newman and Sandridge describe components of an integrated care path developed at the Cleveland Clinic for patients in their Tinnitus Management Clinic (TMC) and demonstrate how interprofessional collaborative clinical practice may be incorporated to achieve best practice outcomes. Wise and Ma review apps currently marketed for smartphones to manage tinnitus symptoms and address the need for research to support their efficacy.
