All follow-up timepoints are scheduled from the time of hearing aid fitting/adjustment (hearing aid group) or when your cochlear implant was activated (cochlear implant group). Contact and appointments after hearing aid fitting/implant activation will be the same for both groups, as detailed below. If you are in the cochlear implant group, these research appointments will be in addition to your clinical cochlear implant rehabilitation appointments but will wherever possible these will be scheduled on the same day to limit your visits to clinic.
