In the rapidly evolving landscape of hearing healthcare, emerging research highlights significant correlations between hearing loss, tinnitus, and consequential changes in both the physiology of the brain and cognitive function. Thus, hearing health-care providers play a pivotal role in holistic patient assessment, including the impact that hearing loss may have on cognition. This one-hour course delves into crucial considerations for integrating cognitive performance into the evaluation of adult patients.
1. Define the underlying changes in cognition associated with hearing loss.
2. Analyze options for incorporating cognitive screenings into their practice.
