I have spent the year working on improving my knowledge and use of objective measures and protocols. For years, I performed ABR testing solely based upon subjective measures. I felt that I was behind in my knowledge of best practice as objective measures were not taught in my graduate program. I have learned which objective measures are useful and am now applying these measures on a regular basis. I have discovered that my subjective measures are often correct, but supplementing with objectivity is very important and will overall improve my clients’ experience with my service. I look forward to using the protocols to support the subjective measures that I have been using successfully over the years. Having guidelines to refer to for testing, reporting, and communicating with patients boosts my confidence.
