Sometimes it’s easy to forget just how important our hearing health is. But just as you might see at optometrist about your vision, or a dentist for your teeth, it’s also important to seek guidance from a hearing health professional on your hearing.
Who are our hearing health professionals?
·The Australian College of Audiology
·Hearing Aid Audiometrist Society of Australia
Audiologists are healthcare professionals who specialise in diagnosing and treating different types of hearing loss. They also help to advise on and distribute hearing aids. Australian audiologists are university graduates with postgraduate qualifications in audiology, or equivalent training. Furthermore, in order to distribute hearing aids to entitled pensioners or veterans, audiologists must be registered with an approved body, and have two years of clinical training.
Audiometrists are professionals who have received specialised training for the use of Pure Tone Audiometry equipment. Australian audiometrists receive certified training in audiometric screening, and can also distribute and recommend hearing aids if they complete the necessary further training.
