"HEAR FOR YOU": A Primary Health Care Approach in Hearing Health

Activity: Participating in or organising event(s)Organising a conference, workshop, exhibition, performance, inquiry, course etcResearch


At the dawn of a second century of pioneering hearing loss research at The University of Manchester, the Centre's for Primary Care Seminars Committee proudly presented the first event dedicated to hearing health research in Primary Care.

Hearing loss is a complex health condition which extends beyond auditory impairment. Fortunately, research findings in the Centre for Primary Care and Health Services Research have shown that hearing loss is not necessarily an inevitable accompaniment of ageing, but potentially preventable lifestyle disease.

The event was organised by Dalia Tsimpida and Dr Salwa Zghebi and was registered with the World Health Organization (WHO).

Opening remarks by Professor Peter Bower, Lead at the Centre for Primary Care and Health Services Research, The University of Manchester

Dr Antje Heinrich (Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness): "Effective communication as a fundamental aspect of active ageing and wellbeing"

Dr Helen Henshaw (NIHR Nottinham Biomedical Research Centre) and Jean Straus (Action on Hearing Loss): "Research priorities for mild-to-moderate hearing loss in adults- A James Lind Alliance Priority Setting Partnership"
