Outline of the event:

Our two-hour symposium will focus on the importance of competence on hearing health and hearing health care. The work done withing primary care will be specifically highlighted. In addition to the need of educating audiologists, importance of collaboration between different actors and levels in the society will be in focus. The role of audiological research is crucial in order to be able to provide evidence-based hearing health care to all. This matter is raised by giving examples on collaboration between clinicians and researchers both on organizational level and in specific research projects.
