Audiology workforce hears that the future of learning is e-Audiology

e-Audiology, a new elearning resource for the audiology workforce, was officially launched on 11 November during a special event in conjunction with the quarterly meeting of the Audiology Advisory Board.

e-Audiology is delivered in partnership by the Department of Health and elearning for healthcare. It will play a key role in supporting the Department of Health’s National Audiology Programme by helping those working within audiology services to provide essential care for their patients.

e-Audiology covers pathway support, primary care referral and service transformation. It will provide support and continuing professional development for: assistant and associate audiologists; audiologists; GPs; GP practice staff; and other healthcare professionals and volunteers.

The e-Audiology learning content was written and quality assured by leading audiology professionals and the curriculum is intended to enhance current methods of delivering training.

The launch was attended by a number of audiology clinical champions and clinical consultants along with key members of the Department of Health. Attendees were given the opportunity to view sample elearning sessions and speak to the team involved with creating e-Audiology.

Clinical champion for e-Audiology, Adrian Davis OBE, attended the launch and said:

“e-Audiology is an ideal resource for supporting and improving NHS audiology pathways, particularly those delivered by audiology assistants and support practitioners. The project provides an interactive learning environment which promotes maximum educational gain for users.”
