Screening memory clinic patients for hearing loss helps to manage risk factor for dementia

A new study led by a Baycrest clinician-scientist titled “Enhancing Clinical Visibility of Hearing Loss in Cognitive Decline” demonstrated that point of care screening for hearing loss in patients of a memory clinic raised physicians’ awareness of its high prevalence among their patients and led to more frequent referrals for hearing help. The study is set to be published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease on March 8, 2022.
