Dr. Mohr's Objectives:

After this lecture physicians will better understand the relationship between hearing loss and cognitive decline and some key research that has been done in this area.

Physicians attending this lecture will be able to better identify patients who are at risk for communication difficulties and efficiently screen for hearing related communication dysfunction.

Physicians should be able to better educate their patients about the risks of untreated hearing loss and the value of better hearing as it relates to their overall health related quality of life (HRQoL).

Physicians should be able to interpret comprehensive audiograms and should also be able to determine if results and symptoms are consistent with typical hearing loss from aging.

Physicians will become more aware of the psychological and economic barriers that keep seniors from getting their hearing losses appropriately identified and from receiving hearing heath care rehabilitation.
