We had a successful Community-Based Hearing Health Care Training in Kisumu. The three days training has been organized by Starkey Hearing Foundation to empower the hearing healthcare coordinators with the three phase model used to change lives of those with hearing impairment by improving their hearing health.
Today, we covered phase 1-this involves identification of patients that need hearing aids, taking of audiograms, ear examination, capturing of patient’s demographic data and taking ear impressions.
