Completely revised and updated, this second edition is a unique handbook that provides audiologists, speech language pathologists, and doctoral students in audiology with evidence-based, clinical guidance on evaluating and treating hearing loss in older adults, with an emphasis on patient-centered hearing health care. It contains the latest information on the demographics of aging as well as the biological, sociological, and psychological factors that affect geriatric hearing loss and its ramifications. A new chapter aims to help audiologists and speech language pathologists teach health care professionals about hearing loss diagnosis and management.
