Organised by Agir Pour l’Audition (Acting for Hearing)
During our session we aim to increase awareness about the reality of hearing loss in the EU (all ages, and especially vulnerable patient groups, such as children and older populations) and about the consequences for the EU citizens and families. With such awareness, and its consequence of increased support from policy makers, scientists, and clinicians, we can improve clinical practices, rehabilitation tools and education systems for hearing impaired people to be better engaged in society and achieve a higher level of quality of life.
We will discuss the following topics:
In our workshop we expect to discuss a call for actions at a european level to improve the current situation.
