Health Education England elearning for healthcare has worked with Public Health England to update the Newborn Hearing Screening Programme (NHSP).

The newborn hearing screening test helps to identify babies who have permanent hearing loss as early as possible. This means that parents can get the advice and support they need as soon as possible after birth.

The new screening sessions within the elearning are:

Unit 1 – Introduction to the NHSP and informed choice
Unit 2 – The ear and hearing
Unit 3 – The NHSP care pathway and quality assurance
Unit 4 – The screening tests
Unit 5 – Screening outcomes
Unit 6 – The NHSP national IT system (S4H) and screening equipment
Unit 7 – NHSP knowledge update

For more information about the elearning programme and to access the sessions, please visit the NHS screening programme page.
