The War on Hearing Loss

Time: 8:10 am
day: Day One


• The dominant experience of patients with hearing loss is the sheer effort and frustration of trying to understand verbal communication
• Hearing loss arises from myriad abnormalities throughout the entirety of the auditory system. It is, therefore, unrealistic to expect remedy of any one abnormality to have broad impact across a majority of hearing loss patients
• New treatment will never reach patients unless physicians are willing to administer it and healthcare systems are willing to pay for it
