Course Description

Noise is prevalent in everyday life, and the general population lacks awareness of the risks of hazardous noise exposure and strategies to reduce noise-induced hearing loss.

This course discusses the why, where, and how of integrating prevention education into your practice.

You will be able to:

  • Discuss potential comorbidities associated with noise-induced hearing loss
  • Communicate hearing loss prevention strategies to patients as part of their hearing health care delivery
