Detrimental Effects of Untreated Hearing Loss Webinar

 

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 | 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST (1 CEU)

 

Description:

This webinar will cover the detrimental effects of untreated hearing loss. Topics include an overview on why hearing loss is often left untreated and how ignoring hearing loss can increase the risk of auditory deprivation and cortical reorganization, as well as depression, isolation, and dementia.

Research indicates that individuals with hearing loss wait an average of seven to ten years before seeking treatment with hearing devices. Many of these individuals are unaware of the detrimental effects of untreated hearing loss. This webinar will outline various research studies and discuss how our physical, cognitive, and social well-being are at risk when we leave hearing loss untreated. Specifically, an increased risk of auditory deprivation and cortical reorganization, cognitive decline and dementia, fatigue, falls, and hospitalizations are a few of the factors highlighted. The seminar concludes with a review of research on patient satisfaction with hearing devices and suggestions on how to reduce the risk of untreated hearing loss.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this seminar, participants will be able to
  • Describe reasons individuals avoid getting help for their hearing loss
  • Discuss the physical, cognitive and social effects of untreated hearing loss
  • Discuss ways to prevent the detrimental effects of untreated hearing loss
