Awareness and prevention activities

Enhacing research

Thanks to the activities of the Amplifon Centre for Research and Studies (CRS), we promote clinical research, disseminate information on the advances and innovation in the fields of audiology and otology, and strive to increase hearing health awareness.

Conferences

Each year, the CRS independent scientific board defines the topics to be addressed, and the agendas of the conferences Amplifon promotes, which usually target a specific hearing-related issue and include roundtables and discussions on the hot topics for ENTs. In 2017, the CRS International Congress, promoted by Giovanni Lorenzini Foundation and sponsored by Amplifon in Seville, was dedicated the correlation between hearing and cognition.

Course sponsorship

The CRS also supports the professional development of doctors and audiologists by collaborating with universities, through the sponsorship of courses and ENT learning programs at the local level. In Italy, the CRS offered ten training events in 2017, which were delivered by experienced national and international experts. 

Consensus Paper

The consensus papers are short scientific papers that are written for the general public and address specific hearing-related topics. In 2017, Amplifon and the CRS published the consensus paper “The hearing brain – the close correlation between hearing and cognition”, which puts in evidence the ‘dual-track’ association between hearing loss and cognitive decline.
