Improving Follow-Up After Newborn Hearing Screening
An action kit on improving follow-up care for newborns.
This action kit is designed to reduce loss to follow-up for newborns after their initial hearing screening. Compiling innovations and strategies tested by Early Hearing Detection and Intervention (EHDI) teams who participated in the NICHQ-led Improved Hearing Screening and Intervention Services (IHSIS) project, the kit offers solutions for engaging families and enrolling newborns in early intervention services. The ideas can help audiologists and EHDI offices improve outcomes for infants with hearing loss.
