This is a new position and the applicant will be required to commission the program of service delivery.
BHA has recently commissioned a drop-In sessions service to provide advice and support to Canberrans with concerns regarding progressive hearing loss.
The initial session is free, and offers a chance to discuss hearing loss with a BHA member who has Ives experience of the condition. The outcomes may include receiving simple or generic advice on hearing health management, or reasurance and confidence building to cope within the family. In more complex situations , the session may involve a recommendation to see a medical practitioner or independent audiologist.
The service does not include a hearing test. Threat test should be conducted by a qualified audiologist. We do administer a general screening test that will indicate appropriate follow up action.
