Podcast: Hearing Loss in Patients with Cognitive Impairment? - Impact on Rehabilitation Outcomes

Green Clock Hours: 0.10 - 1.00

The rehabilitation team works with adults who have both hearing and cognitive impairments. Cognitive or hearing needs are identified, but we rarely address both simultaneously. Is this a missed opportunity? Research shows a correlation between the two and may even indicate a cause-and-effect relationship. This podcast discusses the need for a comprehensive approach and provides a framework for developing interventions for both hearing loss and cognitive impairment. We define hearing loss and cognitive deficit, discuss risks for an individual not receiving comprehensive interventions, and discuss how to create a comprehensive plan of care. An overview of hearing assistive devices is discussed. By the end, you will understand the benefits of creating a holistic plan of care and how to integrate this information into your practice.
