Active Comparator: Standard-of-Care
The "standard-of-care" control group will review and practice with the audiologist content such as: 1) information on hearing-aid batteries and how to change them, 2) cleaning/daily care of the hearing aids, and 3) inserting and removing the hearing aids.
the standard of care in audiologic practice
The treatment group, on the other hand, will use a motivational tool (exploring importance) in a manner that is consistent with the spirit of motivational interviewing.

- Difference in Hours of Hearing Aid Use Between Pre-intervention and Post-intervention [ Time Frame: Collected pre-intervention and again at post-intervention appointment occurring between four and six weeks after the intervention date ]Hearing aid use was measured by the number of hours of use recorded in the hearing-aid software. This was measured on up to four occasions: Visit #1 to #3 (pre-intervention), and Visit #4 (post-intervention). Average daily hours of hearing aid use was documented at each time point, so that the Visit #4 observation is a measure of the average daily use between the start of intervention (Visit #3) and visit #4. Data logger results were averaged between the left and right hearing aids at each time point and across all three pre-intervention time points.
- Difference Between Pre-intervention and Post-intervention Total Score on International Outcome Inventory for Hearing Aids [ Time Frame: Collected twice once at pre-intervention visit and once at a post-intervention visit occurring four to six weeks following the intervention ]The total score from the International Outcome Inventory for Hearing Aids (IOI-HA; Cox et al., 2000) was used to assess overall hearing-aid outcome. This measure consists of seven items assessing (1) daily hearing-aid use, (2) benefit, (3) residual activity limitation, (4) satisfaction, (5) residual participation restriction, (6) impact (of hearing impairment) on others, and (7) quality of Life. Responses to each question range from 1 (poorest) to 5 (best), for a total score range from 7 points to 35 points. The reported measurement was the change in total score from pre-intervention to post-intervention, with a maximum possible change of 28 points.
