Are you properly screening for and treating cognitive decline and dementia?

Recent evidence suggests hearing loss may predict or accelerate cognitive decline. These findings, especially given the rapidly aging American population, have significant clinical implications for hearing healthcare professionals. Join us and expert presenter, Brian Taylor, AuD, Senior Director of Clinical Affairs for Hypersound, for an in-depth overview of the most current hearing loss and dementia prevalence data, as well as the interconnectedness of hearing loss and dementia. This presentation will also provide guidance on how to screen for cognitive decline, modify current hearing aid selection and fitting protocols, as well as provide alternative intervention strategies.

  • Identify the difference between normal aging, mild cognitive decline and dementia
  • Screen and triage for cognitive decline in your office
