Cochlear Implants in Deaf and Deafened Adults: A Global Consultation on Lifelong Aftercare

Closing date now 4 May!

We are fortunate to have received a grant from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canada  to carry out a survey of adult Ci users about the services that they receive and would like after implantation. The Principal Investigator is Prof Connie Mayer, York University, Toronto.

This is the first global survey of its kind, and we would really like as many responses as possible. You will find below the link to the survey in English, German, French, Spanish and Italian.

So – we are asking all CI users to complete, and to share it with colleagues and members of your organisations to encourage as many as possible. The more responses we receive, the better and more influential the report will be.

We would like all responses back by 30 April  in order to start analysing and reporting.

With many thanks for your help and we look forward to sharing the results!

HLAA survey on hearing loss and the pandemic

The Hearing Loss Association of America and Cochlear survey highlights COVID-19’s impact on the community of people with hearing loss in the U.S., including hearing and mental health-related implications.

  • Nearly half of those with hearing loss noticed impacts to other aspects of their health during the pandemic including increased anxiety, isolation and loneliness.
  • 70% are more aware of their hearing loss due to the pandemic; nearly half are more eager to explore hearing loss treatment options.
  • 95% of respondents reported that the use of face coverings impacted their ability to communicate
  • 68% increased their use of technology to communicate
  • 87% of hearing health care providers reported seeing increased signs of loneliness or isolation since the pandemic began.

This is according to a new survey conducted by the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) in partnership with Cochlear Limited. Hearing loss is an invisible disease that affects almost 50 million Americans. The online survey of 1,399 participants sought to find out the pandemic’s impact on those in the hearing loss community, including individuals with hearing loss, their loved ones and their hearing health care professionals.
