The National Institute for Clinical Excellence have recently released their Draft Guidance on Hearing Loss in Adults: Assessment and Treatment for comment.

The full guidance is a lengthy document although their is a summary of the recommendations. As a stakeholder BAA will be responding to the guidance in detail but any organisation can register and send a response using the official procedure on the NICE Website.

The document is a positive step forwards and covers everything from wax management to referral criteria and hearing aid management so many aspects of adult diagnostic and rehabilitation.

Deadline for response is 12th January 2018.
