Audiologists work as part of a multi-disciplinary team providing inpatient and outpatient services for Queensland Health.
Audiologists perform basic and complex hearing assessments and provide rehabilitative and special services such as advice and coordination of hearing aid technologies and services.
Programs & Services
An essential program is the Cochlear Implant Program (CIP) from the Lady Cilanto Children’s Hospital. This involves a multidisciplinary assessment of children with complex developmental and health needs. The CIP program provides audiological management of children pre-implantation, during and post implantation. The CIP also provides outreach services to regional Queensland.
Audiologists in Queensland Health may also have the opportunity to participate in the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Ear Health Program. This provides hearing health and speech pathology services to the Indigenous population of Queensland.
Audiologists wishing to practise in Queensland must have tertiary level qualifications in audiology and provisional or full membership of the The Audiological Society of Australia.
Internationally qualified audiologists
