    Overview: Evidence strongly supports a correlation between hearing impairment in older adults and decline in physical functioning. A recent population cohort study of older adults revealed that hearing impairment was associated with poorer physical function, reduced walking endurance, and accelerated decline. Join us while we discuss this evidence and how to apply it to your practice. You’ll walk away with strategies to promote hearing assessment and to help optimize physical functioning in your older adult patients.
