Is there an association between hearing loss and dementia?
This project will investigate in detail the association between hearing loss and dementia in a cohort of Australian Women aged 70-75 in 1996. The primary research question is ‘are women with hearing loss at greater risk of developing dementia?’. We will assess changes in hearing loss in the years prior to a diagnosis of dementia, and study how many women living with dementia have hearing loss recorded as a comorbid condition.
