AHCSA gives Yadu Aboriginal Health Service a Titan!

AHCSA is excited to share that we have finally been able to give Yadu Aboriginal Health Service a Titan as part of a research program!

The benefits of Yadu having a Titan are:

- Staff can address ear and hearing issues in children sooner and refer them onto the appropriate specialist and allied health services such as audiology, ENT and speech pathology.

- All children will be screened by the Titan machine regularly. The Titan screens the middle ear function as well as the inner ear for damage to the cochlear, this will ensure that children are being screened in between specialist visits and managed appropriately and quickly.

AHCSA, Yadu and Flinders University Research Team are working together to close the gap in Ear and Hearing Health that affects our young Aboriginal children in the remote and rural communities of South Australia.

We are hoping that all children will be screened by the Titan machine, which has the capacity to screen not only the middle ear function but also the inner ear for damage to the cochlear.

This will ensure that children are being screened in between specialist visits and managed appropriately.
