A fundamental tenent of the HEARing CRC’s research is that communication is essential to an individual’s ability to interface with and contribute to our society; hearing loss adversely affects an individual by limiting communication.
For our organisation too, communication is fundamental to achievement of outcomes; it is essential that the knowledge we generate through research is transferred to other researchers, clinicians, consumers and the public, whether by:
- peer-reviewed journal publication
- presentation at Australian and international scientific meetings and conferences
- interaction with the media; or
- liaison with commercial Members and entities.
Communication is also an important element of our Education Program, ensuring that up-to-date and appropriate information is made available in continuing professional development activities, inlcuding our Cochlear Implant Training Workshops; and in teaching programs for students, audiologists, teachers of the deaf and ENT surgeons.
