At the dawn of a second century of pioneering hearing loss research at The University of Manchester, the Centre's for Primary Care Seminars Committee proudly presents the first event globally dedicated in hearing health research in Primary Care.
Hearing loss is a complex health condition which extends beyond auditory impairment. Fortunately, research findings in the Centre for Primary Care and Health Services Research have shown that hearing loss is not necessarily an inevitable accompaniment of ageing, but potentially preventable lifestyle disease. A primary health care (PHC) approach can meet people’s hearing health needs across their life-course and represents an important venue for addressing hearing loss prevention.
The event will have inspiring talks from cutting-edge researchers of the field (from the Institute for Health Policy and Organisation, the Manchester Centre for Audiology and Deafness, the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre and the National UK Charity "Action on Hearing Loss"), who will explain why effective communication is a fundamental aspect of active ageing and well-being.
Importantly, don't miss this special opportunity to participate in an interactive speed consulting session that will help identify new opportunities for research collaborations.
The event is registered with the World Health Organization (WHO), and is supported by:
• The Institute for Health Policy and Organization (IHPO)
• NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre (BRC)
• NIHR Greater Manchester Patient Safety Translational Research Centre (PSTRC)
Please save the date in your diaries - a networking lunch will be provided and more details about the programme will follow shortly.
