I Can't Hear You: The Association of Subclinical Hearing Loss with Cognitive Performance

Hearing loss is the biggest risk factor for dementia, and it’s a modifiable one. The high prevalence of hearing loss in those over age 80 is unfortunately matched by a low level of treatment. This presentation will discuss the causes, prevalence, and treatment of age-related hearing loss. We will examine the level of evidence linking age-related hearing loss and cognitive impairment and decline. Which comes first? Does one lead directly to the other? Are there confounding factors? The presentation will explore the proposed mechanisms relating age-related hearing loss to cognition.
