Abstract This study examined rehabilitative audiology clients’ experiences with shared decision making. Adults with acquired hearing impairment and with no previous experience of rehabilitative audiology were recruited for a shared decision making clinical trial. A sample of 22 participants completed an in-depth interview which was transcribed and analyzed using content analysis. The results were organized into an evidence-based model of rehabilitative audiology shared decision making. Participants described decision making by its actors, processes, and dimensions. Two themes, “my story” and “trust,” highlight the importance of a client-centered and ethical approach to shared decision making in rehabilitative audiology.
