The association between hearing loss and dementia has received significant press coverage. This webinar explores this association and discusses clinical implications. The speaker reviews the literature surrounding hearing loss and dementia to better describe the association, explains potential mechanistic pathways, and describes practical impacts on clinical practice.
This webinar is part of ASHA’s Carhart Series of Audiology Webinars, named in honor of
the “father of audiology” and past ASHA president, Dr. Raymond Carhart. He expressed
a love for the clinic and for practitioners who work hard each day to solve patients’
hearing and communication challenges. Reflecting Carhart’s spirit of curiosity and his
appreciation for discovery and practical application, the series features expert speakers
who use evidence-based decision-making to propose solutions to the top clinical
dilemmas that audiologists face in daily practice.
