20Q: Hearing Loss, Hearing Aids and Dementia - Don’t Let the Science be Hijacked by Hype
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Kevin J. Munro, PhD, MSc, Piers Dawes, PhD
Text/Transcript
Course: #39571Level: Intermediate1 Hour
There is an association between hearing loss and cognitive decline, and hearing loss is also a risk factor for dementia. This course reviews the evidence that hearing loss causes dementia and treating hearing loss reduces the risk of dementia.

Variability in Hearing Aid Outcomes and the Role of Mild Cognitive Impairment
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Hannah Glick, AuD, PhD, CCC-A
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39581Level: Advanced1 Hour
This course examines the impact of hearing treatment in adults on aspects of overall health and well-being, with a particular focus on adults with hearing loss who are at risk for mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Through this course, we will illuminate the role of cognitive screening in audiology clinical practice and the ways in which cognitive screening can aid in clinical decision making and the treatment and rehabilitation process.

Foundations of Hearing Loss and Cognition
Phonak CEU courses

Recorded WebinarLive WebinarMon, Aug 12, 2024 at 12:00 pm EDT
Course: #39028Level: Introductory1 Hour
Cognition as it relates to hearing loss has been an important topic of discussion for the last decade. In this course, hearing care providers will learn about the foundations of cognition and hearing loss, and how to proactively address hearing loss and promote healthy living as a way to possibly mitigate cognitive decline and positively impact the overall well-being of their clients.

Alzheimer's and Other Dementias: Overview for Healthcare Professionals
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Megan L. Malone, MA, CCC-SLP
Recorded Webinar
Course: #42942Level: Introductory1 Hour
An overview for healthcare professionals about Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders is provided in this course. Characteristics of the dementias, such as symptoms, progression, and how they are diagnosed, are described. Care planning strategies for improving communication with patients and families, understanding and managing behavioral challenges, and promoting independence are also discussed.

20Q: Changes to Auditory Processing and Cognition During Normal Aging – Should it Affect Hearing Aid Programming? Part 2 – Programming Hearing Aids for Older Adults
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Richard Windle, PhD, MSc, CS
Text/Transcript
Course: #39168Level: Advanced2.5 Hours
Part 1 discussed how a decline in some elements of cognition and auditory processing alters speech perception during normal aging. This course considers how hearing aids may help or hinder speech perception for older adults. The author discusses how different hearing aid settings can affect the speech signal and consider practical ways we can use this in the clinic to offer the optimum fitting for an individual, in particular how we should set up hearing aid compression.

What’s New About Getting Old? The Implications of Normal Aging for Hearing Healthcare Providers and Hearing Aid Manufacturers
Signia CEU courses
Presented by Brian Taylor, AuD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39253Level: Advanced1 Hour
As tens of millions of Americans are living longer lives, longevity is creating challenges for everyone, including hearing healthcare providers and their manufacturing partners. Centered on the human need to connect with others, this course addresses three components of hearing care: 1.) the specific communication challenges of the normal-aging population, 2.) how hearing healthcare providers can more effectively address the communication and quality of life needs of this group by using three clinical tools that meet the A-B-C criteria, and 3.) how manufacturers can engineer devices that leverage recent findings on the dynamics of group conversations.

20Q: Changes to Auditory Processing and Cognition During Normal Aging – Should it Affect Hearing Aid Programming? Part 1 – Changes Associated with Normal Aging
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Richard Windle, PhD, MSc, CS
Text/Transcript
Course: #39167Level: Advanced2.5 Hours
Many aspects of cognition and auditory processing decline with normal aging, and this makes it difficult to hear in challenging situations, even without the additional problems caused by peripheral hearing loss. There is a huge amount of literature about hearing and aging. This course summarizes relevant findings and discusses the processes of normal aging that particularly affect speech perception.

Course: #42939Level: Introductory2 Hours
An overview for the hearing healthcare professional about Alzheimer's disease and related disorders is provided in this course. Strategies for assessment and diagnosis, improving communication with patients, understanding and managing behavioral challenges, care planning and promoting independence are discussed. Methods for supporting family and caregivers are also described.

ACHIEVE Randomized Trial: Hearing Intervention to Delay Cognitive Decline
AudiologyOnline CEU courses
Presented by Jennifer A. Deal, PhD
Recorded Webinar
Course: #39041Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course reviews the design and results of the Aging and Cognitive Health Evaluation in Elders (ACHIEVE) randomized clinical trial, which tested if a best-practices hearing intervention vs. health education control delays cognitive older in older adults with untreated hearing loss over 3 years. Results are contextualized within a broader discussion of the strengths and limitations of the randomized controlled design, with emphasis on how to discuss study findings with patients and research questions that remain unanswered.
