    Abstract

    The aim of this research was to examine the need, accuracy and application of automated audiometry for use in tela-audiology service models through a series of related studies.

    This series of studies; i) identified a lower rate of hearing aid uptake in rural compared to urban populations; ii) validated the use of automated audiometry in tertiary care; iii) showed that automated audiometry is highly sensitive for detecting hearing loss and identified some limitations in its use for complex hearing loss; and iv) demonstrated the feasibility of incorporating automated audiometry into a telehealth service.
