Team Attends Huge International Hearing Aid Conference
David and Leona attending EUHA 2016.
Approximately 7,800 acoustician and hearing healthcare professionals from around the world attended the Annual international congress held in Hanover this year. We believe that attending the congress is vital to ensuring our practice is constantly updating our clinical knowledge and keeping abreast of the latest research developments. This year’s focus was on hearing loss and its relationship to cognition and healthy aging, with very interesting presentations. Indeed on a very positive note Dr Reed concluded that to his knowledge no other health related field has found such dramatic potential for late intervention, with research ultimately showing that hearing aid intervention can potentially forestall cognitive decline and lessen the risk of falls.
Having worked in the field of audiology for the last 30 years it is wonderful to be part of health profession that is constantly evolving and both challenges and stimulates our professional development. Our relationship with our patients is what keeps us striving to incorporate technology advancements, testing, fitting protocols and hearing aid systems to our practice, (it also helps that innovation excites us). Our ethos is to ensure we deliver recognised best practice protocols coupled with a holistic approach to hearing healthcare.
