Developing a framework for future integration of hearing and dementia care pathways for older adults

PROJECT STATUS: Not yet started
/
START DATE AND DURATION: September 2022
Summary

There is robust evidence demonstrating an association between hearing loss acquired in mid-life and dementia. However, despite an awareness of this association, cognition is not currently addressed in NHS hearing aid clinics.

This UK-wide national project aims to develop a framework for future integration of hearing and dementia care pathways, working with professional stakeholders involved in hearing loss and dementia care in both the NHS and private sector, patients and members of the public to understand barriers and facilitators that may influence future implementation of innovative hearing and dementia care pathways.
