AUDIOLOGY AND COGNITION – JOINING THE DOTS
As people are living longer, audiologists will see an increasing number of patients who may be experiencing symptoms of mild cognitive impairment (MCI).
To provide the highest levels of service for our older patients, audiologists should include cognitive screening as part of the initial assessment. Through his independent work as an audiological consultant, Gary Holland will discuss a simple-to-use screening tool that is freely available for any health care practitioner to use in their practice.
Gary Holland has worked as an audiologist for over 40 years and has won several awards for his work, including the AIHHP Recognition Award for Outstanding Services to Audiology.
