The CHIC clinic provides coordinated medical and developmental care, including assessment and management of infants and children with permanent hearing loss (sensorineural/ANSD/permanent conductive e.g. microtia).
The clinic also offers ongoing care and surveillance for families who cannot access a community paediatrician, those with complex needs, and those who are not engaged in early intervention services.
The clinic aims to engage and upskill community paediatricians in caring for children with hearing loss while offering a consultative service. The clinic supports training and research activities through the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute and the University of Melbourne.
