Noise is prevalent in
everyday life, and the general population lacks awareness of the risks of
hazardous noise exposure and strategies to reduce noise-induced hearing loss.
By integrating hearing loss prevention education into patient encounters and
taking advantage of outreach/education opportunities, audiologists can help
reduce the prevalence of noise-induced hearing loss. This course discusses the
why, where, and how of integrating prevention education into your practice.
You will be able to:
potential comorbidities associated with noise-induced hearing loss
hearing loss prevention strategies to patients as part of their hearing health
possible outreach opportunities for building awareness of the auditory and
non-auditory risks of hazardous noise exposure
