the audiology has achieved a great advance, where currently speech pathologists act in private clinics and in public services, in addition to schools, colleges and universities. To observe the development of the area of Audiology in Brazil, we note that there is a growing number of new audiology procedures. In 1980 the practice of audiology was limited in hospitals, offices and private clinics, and in 1988 due to a new constitution that devoted attention to ... Read More

This study involves research. Some chemotherapeutic drugs that can permanently reduce hearing are termed "ototoxic". One such drug is the chemotherapy called cisplatin. Currently, if a patient is receiving cisplatin, hearing is tested in the Audiology Clinic using lengthy protocols and may be retested only when it is requested by their oncologist and when the Veteran can arrange an appointment. Researchers think that hearing testing prior to every treatment ... Read More

Busy Primary Care providers (PCPs) have complex practices with many competing demands, making it difficult to improve their HL identification rates. Little research has been conducted to identify effective approaches to address the poor PCP knowledge and provide tools for them to better identify/refer patients with HL for appropriate intervention. Current data suggests there is a critical need to redesign how PCPs deliver hearing health care (HHC) by ... Read More

Hearing impairment is one of the most common disabilities in veterans. The decreased ability to communicate is troubling in itself, but the strong association of hearing loss with functional decline and depression adds further to the burden on the hearing-impaired. Although hearing amplification improves quality of life, hearing evaluations are offered infrequently to older patients. Only 25 percent of patients with aidable hearing loss receive treatment. Up ... Read More

The purpose of this multi-site randomized clinical study was to assess treatment outcomes for three forms of tinnitus treatment: Tinnitus Retraining Therapy (TRT), Tinnitus Masking, and Tinnitus Education (TED). There were four study sites: VAMC Audiology Clinics at Bay Pines, FL; Portland, OR; Seattle, WA; and San Diego, CA. Thirty-six subjects (Veterans) were enrolled into treatment at each site - 12 into each treatment group. Each subject received 18 ... Read More

This multi-site study evaluated the implementation of Progressive Tinnitus Management (PTM), which combines both Audiology and Psychology approaches to Tinnitus Management. Those Veterans who require intervention for tinnitus have different levels of need, and this progressive approach gives them the appropriate level of intervention. Read More

There is a strong connection between hearing loss and cognitive impairment, particularly dementia, in old age. Worldwide, dementia affects approximately 5% of persons over the age of 65 years. Hearing loss is even more prevalent in old age, affecting an estimated one third of persons over the age of 65 years. Thus, there is likely a large degree of overlap between the impairments. Indeed, this overlap may influence older adults' everyday functioning, ... Read More

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma has been studied in the Pediatric Branch for at least 20 years, during which time a number of different treatment protocols have been used. Approximately 110 patients have apparently been cured of their lymphoma. The present protocol has no therapeutic component, but is designed to document the late effects that may have been encountered by our patients, either as a consequence of the disease or its treatment. In essence, patients who ... Read More
