Audiology Project Webinar " TAP White Paper: Hearing Loss and Diabetes: Screening, Diagnosis and Treatment/Monitoring"

  • 24 Jul 2018
  • 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM
  • Online

Presenter: Christopher Spankovich, Au.D., Ph.D., M.P.H.
Tuesday, July 24, 2018
12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.  Eastern Time

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) Is a highly prevalent metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia resulting from defects in insulin function.  Hearing loss has long been associated with DM, however, contradictory evidence in the literature led to lack of support for consideration of hearing loss as part of on-going DM management.  In this lecture we will discuss direct and indirect effects of DM on auditory function and the importance of early identification in prevention and treatment of hearing loss. 

Learning Objectives

  • 1.     Participants will be able to describe direct and indirect effects of diabetes on auditory physiology and pathophysiology
  • 2.     Participants will be able to compare and contrast screening and diagnostic approaches to hearing loss in persons with diabetes
  • 3.      Participants will be able to describe preventative strategies for hearing conservation for persons with diabetes
