What is an audioprosthetist?
An audioprosthetist is a hearing health professional who sells, fits, adjusts and replaces hearing aids based on a certificate from a doctor, speech pathologist or audiologist attesting the need for that type of device.
This professional also supports patients so they can adapt to their hearing aids or listening devices as well as possible.
An audioprosthetist works closely with other hearing professionals, including ear, nose and throat doctors (ENTs) and audiologists, as well as with the patient’s family.
