Experimental: Program Group
Following a failed hearing screening, participants will be offered the standard of care (information sheet recommending a comprehensive hearing evaluation) and asked to complete the iManage Program. Six months after the screening participants will be asked if they visited an audiologist.
Other: iManage (my hearing loss)
An internet-based decision coaching guide to help an individual decide if they wish to visit an audiologist.
No Intervention: Delayed Program Group
Following a failed hearing screening, participants will be offered the standard of care (information sheet recommending a comprehensive hearing evaluation). Six months after the screening participants will be asked if they visited an audiologist and they will be given the opportunity to complete the iManage Program.
- Audiologist visit [ Time Frame: 6 months following the failed hearing screening ]The percentage of individuals who visit an audiologist for a comprehensive hearing evaluation.
- Change on the Health Belief Questionnaire, a survey that measures attitudes about the 6 constructs of the Health Belief Model as related to seeking hearing healthcare [ Time Frame: Baseline (within one week of screening) and 6 months post baseline ]Mean score (which can range between 1 and 11) on each of 6 scales: perceived susceptibility, perceived severity, perceived benefits, perceived barriers, perceived self-efficacy, and cues to action. A higher score indicates greater agreement with the construct.
- Change on the Readiness for Change Questionnaire, a single-item questionnaire that attempts to place the participant on a continuum regarding readiness for hearing healthcare as outline by the Transtheoretical Model. [ Time Frame: Baseline, 4 weeks post baseline, and 6 months post baseline ]Participants will select the statement that best describes their view of their hearing status, 1 indicates "precontemplation", 2 indicates "contemplation", 3 indicates, "preparation", 4 indicates "action" on the Transtheoretical Model Continuum.
- Total score on the Hearing Loss Support Scale, a questionnaire that measures self-perceived informational and emotional support from family, peers, and healthcare providers about managing hearing loss. [ Time Frame: Baseline, and 6 months post baseline ]Total score can range between 7 and 49, with a higher score indicating greater support from others.
- Program uptake [ Time Frame: 3 months following the failed hearing screening ]Percentage of experimental participants who begin the iManage program
- Program completion [ Time Frame: 3 months following the failed hearing screening ]Percentage of experimental participants who complete the iManage program
- Mean scores on the Audiology Decision Making Scale, a scale designed to measure preparedness for decision making for 13 specific decision processes [ Time Frame: 4 weeks after completion of iManage Program ]Mean score can range between 1 and 5 with higher scores indicating greater self-perceived usefulness of the iManage Program in making a decision about hearing healthcare.
- A focus group of individuals who completed the iManage program to learn participants perceptions about the content, benefits and drawbacks of the iManage program [ Time Frame: 6 to 8 weeks after completion of iManage Program ]Qualitative thematic analysis will indicate common attitudes (themes) about the iManage program
