Abstract

Hearing loss is the third most common chronic condition but can be secondary to a range of conditions encountered in primary care.

As the most common cause of hearing loss, this article provides an overview of age-related hearing loss, its consequences, and pragmatic treatment approaches, including over-the-counter hearing technology.
