Hearing Health Care is a significant public health issue that requires actions from health providers, health care systems, and the broader community. In response to this need, in 2016 the National Academy of Medicine published a report on Hearing Health Care for Adults: Priorities for Improving Access and Affordability. This report has prompted national efforts to expand treatment options, provide the evidence necessary for consumers to make informed decisions about their hearing healthcare, and examine various health delivery and payment models. This session discusses the impact of hearing loss, how it affects communication, and the implications it has for health care practice. It also examines recent reports from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that analyze available data on noise-induced health loss. The speakers will highlight interventions for hearing loss as well as prevention strategies to preserve hearing across the life span. Speakers also will address safety and communication strategies essential to provide quality health care. Preventive medicine resident examples from the field illustrate preventive medicine and occupational medicine physician actions for hearing preservation, surveillance of risk factors and improving access. Opportunities for action to preserve hearing, including strategies for safety, are presented. Consideration is given to effective communication, prevention and approaches for integrating hearing content into health professions curricula and public health programs.

Session objectives:
• Describe at least two preventive measures to protect against hearing loss.
• Identify public health approaches to effectively communicate with individuals with hearing loss from underserved and vulnerable populations.
• Identify early detection and treatment strategies for individuals with hearing loss.
• Identify resources and mechanisms to provide safe environments.
