2020 Public Health and Hearing Webinar Series – Recordings

H:EAR and AHH

This online seminar series explores and challenges current thinking on hearing loss in older adults – from a mere inconvenience to a major public health problem, affecting mental and physical health, social interactions, and increasing economic costs to society.

It provides insights into the lived experience – necessary for understanding how to redesign approaches to healthcare. The series discusses ways in which hearing healthcare is delivered, explores the evidence which supports the existing service delivery model, identifies challenges to this, and proposes innovative solutions to address this. Finally, the series discusses the importance of consumer engagement in co-constructing user-centred models of health, and explores ways in which Australia could reconsider its current approach and transform hearing health to better meet the growing need.
