We are very pleased to announce our new Newborn Hearing Screening Training Curriculum (NHSTC) DVD. This curriculum was developed to standardize the way that new hearing screeners are trained and to ensure that each screener receives the information that will enable them to provide high quality, efficient and effective newborn hearing screening. We feel confident that it will be a wonderful educational resource for your hospitals to use for training screeners.
Although the NHSTC was developed to specifically address the training needs of the inexperienced screener, you may find it useful for other training or education needs; for instance, the first section contains materials that may be helpful in educating others about the importance of early hearing detection and intervention.
The package contains 2 discs; the first disc is the curriculum. It is formatted for DVD movie viewing. The DVD contains 8 sections; and covers all aspects of the newborn hearing screening and follow-up process. Each section has learning objectives and a test at the end of each section that can be used to fulfill hospital competencies. The second disc contains resources and includes items such as scripts and frequently asked questions for screeners to use with parents in Spanish and English, related websites, and test questions and answers.
We hope that you will find these materials useful in assisting newborn hearing screening programs improve their standard of care to the babies and families in your state through efficient, effective, and comprehensive screening practices.
