Making sense of hearing related cognitive decline CPDONLINE48


Location: Online

Cognitive impairment and sensory loss are two of the leading contributors to non-fatal disease burden among older Australians. Critically, age-related hearing loss is associated with cognitive decline, and some have suggested this link to be causal and modifiable. This talk will cover the latest cognitive ageing and dementia epidemiology, describe their progression over the lifecourse, and identify the most widely recognised risk-factors for dementia prevention. A key focus will be to review hypotheses proposed to explain the link between hearing loss and cognitive decline, and appraise the current evidence in support of hearing healthcare as a viable intervention for reducing dementia risk.

Using an interdisciplinary approach to manage complex paediatric cases: lessons learned CPDONLINE45


Location: Online

At Hear and Say our interdisciplinary team of clinical specialists work collaboratively in order to provide children with hearing loss the best possible access to spoken language through the use of optimally fitted hearing technology. In partnership with the child's family, our goal is to enable children who are deaf/hearing-impaired to reach their full potential and participate and contribute to mainstream society. We will use case studies to demonstrate how we work together as a team in the management of complex cases. Case studies will include the management of children with varying degrees of hearing loss and a range hearing technology, as well as a child with severe additional disabilities.

Standard of Care: A New Paradigm for Adult Health CPDONLINE44


Location: Online

There is a need for international expert consensus and guidelines as a necessary step to improve the quality and consistency of care for adults living with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. Standard of Care is intended to provide health care professionals, patients, researchers, payers, and other impacted parties with the mechanisms to deliver the best possible health outcomes for these patients. This presentation will give an overview of the development of the Standard of Care for adults with a severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss and how Cochlear is involved in this process. In order to develop the Standard of Care, an independent, international, expert panel has been established to undertake a Delphi process as a step towards international expert consensus regarding the treatment of adults with severe to profound sensorineural hearing loss. The presentation will also outline the steps involved in this evidence-based process.

Harnessing mHealth Technologies to Empower Hearing Aid Users to SelfManage their Hearing Loss CPDONLINE43


Location: Online

mHealth technologies have the power to personalise hearing healthcare and increase user interaction, resulting in a more person-centred approach. This can lead to an increased sense of autonomy and empowerment. These themes emerged from several studies that examined hearing aid users' experience of (i) smartphoneconnected hearing devices, and (ii) an mHealth programme to improve knowledge about hearing aids and communication.
