Periodic Report 1 - AHEAD III (Assessment of hearing in the elderly: aging and degeneration - integration through immediate intervention)

Project ID: 200835
Funded under: FP7-HEALTH


The AHEAD III project was specifically designed to:
- provide evidence of the effects of hearing impairment on adults and particularly on the elderly;
- increase the awareness amongst administrators, policy makers, health care professionals and public opinion concerning early detection and intervention of hearing impairment in adults and particularly in the elderly;
- analyse costs associated with the implementation of large-scale integrated or nationwide screening programmes for hearing impairment and intervention in adults;
- provide minimum requirements for screening methods and the related diagnostic techniques;
- develop recommendations and guidelines on how to implement successful screening programmes using the variety of available methods as well as set new criteria for recently proposed technologies such as screening over the phone or internet and methods for the hearing disability screening.
