This document has been retired. The Academy’s Task Force on the Early Identification of Hearing Loss agrees that the use of support personnel in newborn hearing screening programs is an appropriate and often necessary strategy to achieve universal detection of congenital hearing loss. The roles and responsibilities of support personnel should be clearly defined. Support personnel should be supervised, preferably by a licensed/certified audiologist.
Whether serving on a clinical document development panel or participating as peer reviewers, volunteers have regular chances to deepen their engagement with the Academy and make important contributions benefiting the field of audiology. If you are interested in clinical document development, please volunteer to express interest and submit a CV to the Academy’s guidelines staff by email.
To view the list of guidelines and strategic documents in development and to learn more about the Academy’s clinical document development process, visit the Academy’s Practice Resources website. Information from interested members is accepted on an ongoing basis, and members will be contacted as clinical document volunteer openings occur.
