Organization: PSA charitable foundation

Project title: Training Workforce for Hearing Care

Regions: Western Pacific Region – throughout the region

Outline of the event:

We will launch training courses in hearing care for community-based long-term care center managers. The managers will learn how to be aware of hearing loss and administer simple hearing screening. After the training course, the managers will return to their community-based long-term care center and implement fundamental hearing care for the residents. Once the managers find potential hearing loss patients, they refer the patients to the PSA charitable foundation or assistive device center of the local government for further hearing examination and hearing device fitting.
