The aim of the workshop is to provide a forum for Australasian medical professionals with an interest in childhood hearing loss (e.g. paediatricians, ENT surgeons, geneticists) to discuss the best practice for recommending medical investigations for infants and children with newly diagnosed hearing loss. The workshop is open only to members of the Childhood Hearing Australasian Medical Professionals (CHAMP) Network. The session will draw together available existing guidelines and consensus statements, involve a round table discussion of current practices and conclude with a consensus statement which will be published.
