An inventory of the health care for deaf and hard of hearing patients in the Netherlands.

 

Foreign research has shown that deaf adults have a significantly poorer quality of life than the general population for the physical and psychological domains. This is why some European countries like England and Austria, have specialised health care facilities for deaf people. In the Netherlands such (public health) facilities are not available. A first pilot study has shown that communication problems between deaf patients and their GP in the Netherlands exist. This study will provide a broader inventory of medical health care for deaf and hard of hearing in the Netherlands, combined with epidemiological research, to determine the size, causes and consequences of these problems. If nescessary, we will suggest a guideline to adapt the health care in the Netherlands, resluting in an improved health related quality of life for deaf and hard of hearing people.
