84. Hearing aids make communication easier for people with mild hearing loss

and management pathways can vary locally with different models of care emerging in a drive to develop more integrated services for out of hospital and community settings. Most assessments and hearing aid fittings are provided under an NHS standard contract. This recent framework provides key outcome indicators to support commissioners and includes the recommendation to include in contracts measurement of an individual’s disability and communication difficulties using validated tools. NICE is currently (...) value for money. The review highlights the improvements to communication and socialisation of wearing hearing aids for managing mild-to-moderate hearing loss. This suggests that national level awareness campaigns may be useful in reducing the stigma of hearing loss, raising awareness of services and encouraging people to seek intervention sooner so that they can maintain conversations and feel less isolated.

Susceptibility to the damaging effects of a hazard may be due to pre-existing vulnerabilities, for example for people with disabilities or the elderly, or vulnerabilities may become apparent due to the nature of the hazard, for example asthma suffers to influenza.

87. Javad Hekmat-panah:“Elderly”—an outdated and potentially harmful term

an internationally consistent terminology, which is used for diagnosis, communication, and treatment of diseases based on individual age, severity of illness, and comorbidities. The ambiguous term elderly offers no useful information about any of this. In medicine it can evoke false ideas about the person being described as elderly in the listener’s mind, introduce unfair social biases and generalisations, and generate ill conceived policies. I’d argue that the term elderly is like “ imbecile” or “ idiot,” which (...) made the targets of calls for healthcare rationing in order to curb these costs. My suggestion that we avoid the term elderly in medicine goes beyond the word itself to encompass all that it connotes: stereotypes, unwarranted impressions, and bias. This is essentially a human rights issue. Medicine is the science and art of individualised communication, evaluation, recommendation, and treatment. Each patient has the right to be treated as an individual, according to medical standards based
