Audiology – Breaking the Sound Barrier

Blindness cuts one off from things, but deafness cuts one off from people.” Helen Keller.

Hearing loss affects 1 in 6 in the UK and is associated with isolation and dementia. Technological advances have led to a remarkable ability to restore functional hearing to deaf people with cochlear implants. This presentation describes the pioneering implant work performed in audiology in Manchester for over 30 years.

Invited Speaker: Dr Martin O'Driscoll (Consultant Clinical Scientist (Audiology) Manchester Royal Infirmary)
