Instructional video

A free instructional video designed to fit within a 30 minute in-service session for staff as well as for pre-service training.

The video opens with residents talking frankly about their experience of hearing loss and its impacts.  This leads on to effective ways of speaking to someone with a hearing loss and then to a thorough demonstration of essential skills needed to manage and trouble shoot hearing aids.

The video and accompanying Good Practice Guide have been promoted by the Australian Aged Care Quality Agency and by the Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council.  This website is referenced in the Companion Volumes for the Diploma of Nursing and the Certificates in Individual and Ageing Support.

The video was filmed as part of a Better Practice award winning hearing assistance program at IRT William Beach Gardens. It was produced in partnership with the LinkAGE Program of St Vincent’s Health Australia and Australian Hearing staff, with funding from Cochlear Ltd.
