Project title: World Hearing Day 2024: Establishing community linkage with its neighbors – QMMC HEARS out Barangay Escopa, Quezon City

Primary region: WPR

Country: Philippines

Event Description:

The QMMC Department of ORL-HNS celebrates World Hearing Day 2024 with a whole-day affair of hearing screening and showing of audio-visual presentations on proper ear care and prevention of hearing loss, for hospital employees and among members of nearby communities around the hospital, initiating forging partnerships with the surrounding community for primary ear and hearing care activities. Ear examination and hearing screening using the hearWho app, manual screening audiometers, and automated hearing screeners will be performed. Short video clips of proper ear care and prevention of hearing loss will be shown. It is envisioned to jumpstart health promotion activities in the community on ear and hearing health care as primary prevention, and bridge them to secondary (medical treatment) and tertiary prevention (surgical and rehabilitative treatment) activities in the hospital in the future. Additional activities to be held are courses on Newborn Hearing Screening Personnel Certification, Temporal Bone Dissection, and Audiology.
