[Correspondence] Research priorities for mild-to-moderate hearing loss in adults

Hearing loss affects more than 10 million people in the UK alone, the majority (92%) of whom experience mild or moderate losses. It has been recognised globally that, “hearing loss continues to be an area in which there is low and highly variable take-up of available interventions and little systematic data for outcomes”.1 Hearing loss is highly prevalent, which makes it costly to society. However, it is also costly to the individual since hearing loss has a substantial effect on interpersonal communication, psychological wellbeing, quality of life, and economic independence.
