Coexisting Dementia and Hearing Conditions

The Coexisting Dementia and Hearing Conditions Priority Setting Partnership will work with patients, carers and clinicians to identify uncertainties about the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment (including management and self-management) of these conditions. 

Dementia and hearing-related conditions, for example, hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis, are common and often coexist. The co-occurrence of dementia and hearing conditions can impede their diagnosis and management and can substantially affect the quality of life of people living with these conditions and their families.

The JLA PSP is being carried out by the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) and the University of Nottingham, in partnership with Alzheimer’s Research UK (ARUK) and the Royal National Institute for Deaf People (RNID).
