UNHSEIP Diagnostic and amplification protocols

January, 2016
This document (previously referred to as Appendix F) details key procedural elements and technical specifications required for the provision of audiologic assessment and amplification to babies and pre-school children identified through the Universal Newborn Hearing Screening and Early Intervention Programme (UNHSEIP). Section 3.3.3 Audiological management of babies has been updated. The revised protocol can be found under the title “Revised Audiology Guidelines for babies with meningitis” in the Publications section (see top left of this webpage and click on publications) of the NSU Website. This section of the Diagnostic and amplification protocols should be replaced with the new guidelines in all DHBs pending a full update of the document.

Cohort and Case Control Analyses of Breast Cancer Mortality: BreastScreen Aotearoa 1999-2011

December, 2015
This major new study confirms that New Zealand’s organised breast screening programme, BreastScreen Aotearoa (BSA) is reducing deaths from breast cancer. The study concludes that for women who have ever been screened by BSA, the rate of death from breast cancer is reduced by a third, compared to women never screened by the programme. The findings of this study are in line with mortality studies of breast screening programmes internationally.

Indicators have been aligned with the change in the screening protocol to automated auditory brainstem response (aABR) screening only.
