GET INVOLVED: Proposed audit of provision of hearing aids for mild/moderate hearing losses

As an extension to an existing project hosted at the University of Manchester, Prof Kevin Munro and Dr Michael Stone are proposing to carry out an audit of hearing aid dispensing across a large number of NHS patients first fitted in 2016. We propose to mine information from Auditbase to include data about the hearing loss, patient demographic (age, gender, profession) and tie this in with the data logged routinely by modern digital hearings aids. The aims are to identify factors that predict successful and quantifiable outcomes, as well as possibly identify factors that support lack of intervention. This of high relevance to future service delivery within the NHS.
