I came across a site recently that bills itself, quite aptly, as an online think tank for hearing. The site is rich with new thinking pertaining to the delivery of hearing Care across both the Private and Public provision sectors.
The site has a couple of downloads, which I think are outstanding examples of modern thought leading pertaining to Hearing Healthcare. The Author in most cases is Curtis Alcock, a practice owner whose practice is based in Exeter in the United Kingdom.
The site address is www.audira.org.uk
The site introduction is as follows:
This website is a constantly evolving work dedicated to exploring issues related to hearing and the provision of hearing care. Audira aims to create a culture in which the majority:
- Respect their hearing
- Do everything they can to keep their hearing working at its optimum throughout life
- Are mindful of the role their hearing plays within their own lives and society
- Confident that society will support them should a residual reduction in hearing put them at a disadvantage
There are several powerpoint type downloads as well as a few thought provoking articles on the site. I would reccomend that you visit the site and have a good look around, I also think it will be of benefit to everyone to become involved and contribute. Please find a link to one of the downloads below.
