In this unit students will apply their audiological knowledge to recommend hearing solutions and (re)habilitation services to meet the needs of those with hearing losses, across the lifespan. Students will identify clients who need hearing and assistive listening devices, and understand how to protect a client's residual hearing, and develop aural rehabilitation programs. This unit will promote an understanding of the clinical pathways for people with hearing loss, from identification and appropriate referrals, to technological and communication options. Students will complete a workplace experience with an interdisciplinary team to understand the role of audiology in healthcare.
