About this Partnership

The Co-existing Dementia and Hearing Conditions Priority Setting Partnership (PSP) is working with people living with dementia and/or hearing conditions, their supporters, and clinicians to identify uncertainties about risk reduction, diagnosis, and treatment for these conditions. The PSP is also interested in dementia and the Deaf community.

Dementia and hearing-related conditions, for example, hearing loss, tinnitus and hyperacusis, are common and often co-exist. 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 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).
