Audiology Australia has developed guidelines for hearing health care practitioners (Audiologists and Audiometrists) and hearing services providers to support the safe and effective delivery of hearing services through teleaudiology to all Australians. 

The Australian Department of Health commissioned Audiology Australia to develop these Guidelines, with funding allocated from the 2020 Budget package to implement key initiatives from the Roadmap for Hearing Health. 

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the consultation and testing phase of the project. Your feedback shaped and improved the Guidelines.
