Ida Institute has introduced the Teen and Tweens Dilemma Game, a new version of the popular Dilemma Game tool that is designed to better prepare hearing healthcare professionals to deal with clinical situations when treating teenage patients.
The new tool consists of a series of dilemma cards that describe challenging scenarios involving teens or tweens with hearing loss. Three possible solutions are given, with the understanding that the 'perfect' solution may not exist. With no right or wrong answers, game play encourages reflection, critical thinking, and analysis of the potential consequences that a professional’s choices may have on a patient and a variety of stakeholders.
“By helping hearing care professionals to examine various aspects of the teenage experience and consider those situations from the patient’s perspective, we aim to deepen understanding and motivate more patient-centered interaction that benefits both teens and hearing care professionals,” explains Ida Institute Managing Director Lise Lotte Bundesen.
