Survey : motivations and satisfaction of cochlear implant users

1 04 2011

The Medical University of South Carolina is conducting a study assessing the motivations and satisfaction of cochlear implant device users, and they say ~

The purpose of this study is to explore how social media impacts decision making of cochlear implant users and how social media, including patient-to-patient interaction, helps with device selection. Our goal is to use the information to educate physicians and audiologists about how social media is changing their practice, in order to deliver current and optimal patient care and education. The study requests persons having received at least one cochlear implant device or parents of children with a cochlear implant to participate in an online survey, which includes questions regarding demographics, the surgical experience, and the performance of your device so far. Participation in the study is both voluntary and anonymous.

This study is being conducted under the direction of Dr. Ted Meyer through the The Cochlear Implant Program at the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) in Charleston, South Carolina. The survey should take at most 20 minutes to complete. Your participation would be of great value to the medical community and the results can provide useful feedback.

Your participation in this study is voluntary. If you decide to participate, your responses will be anonymous and confidential. You may contact the Institutional Review Board at MUSC (843) 792-4148 to report problems or concerns related to this study. If you have any questions regarding this survey, please contact me at
