Over the past decade, Dean Garstecki’s research has focused on the role of perceived (psychological) control in adult hearing loss management in general, and among older women in particular. In part, this interest has been fueled by the disproportionately low take up rate among adult hearing aid candidates, despite their proven benefits.
