• The history and development of the hearing aid dispensing system in this country is outlined in relation to the status of dispensing today. We enumerate the problems within the traditional system, various attempts to correct them, and advantages of variations of the traditional system. This article presents a concept of total hearing rehabilitation, including the direct dispensing of aids based on the professional otolaryngological-audiological team working together within the clinic setting. Based on the results of 20-months' experience in dispensing, we advocate a reexamination of professional roles involved in provision for hearing aids.
