Addressing hearing loss is associated with improvements in overall wellbeing including mental health by enabling people to communicate more easily with others. This can reduce the social isolation and quality of life problems associated with hearing loss. Addressing untreated hearing loss appears to be associated with improved cognition and a reduced risk of dementia.
This webinar will feature presentations from a diverse multi-disciplinary panel of experts. The panel will present real world examples from their own perspective and experience as well as discussing the recommendations from the Consensus Paper in relation to hearing loss and depression, cognition and dementia.
