>------------------------------------------------------------
>Large neonatal hearing screening programmes have started in several
>European countries over the last two to three years. Major programmes
>are currently being financed in the USA, mainly as a result of the NIH
>Consensus onference on Early Identification of Hearing Impairment in
>Infants and Young Children (March 1993). A number of national,
>European and international projects are currently focused on the
>practical implementation of such programmes, but many who work in
>clinics may not be fully aware of the results achievable in this rapidly
>growing area. As regional and national screening programmes are
>launched, substantial investment of resources will be entrained. The
>European Project AHEAD from the Biomedicine and Health Programme of
>the European Commission (1996-1999) is showing that there is an urgent
>need to evaluate effectiveness and to establish standards of best
>practice.
>
>The conference is an ideal forum for discussion of this important issue. It
>will consist of presentations of evidence by specialists (the 'Evidence
>Presenters') in various fields to a panel of leading experts in an open
>forum. Specialists in related fields, including neonatology, paediatrics,
>audiology, otolaryngology, communication disorders, speech-language
>pathology, epidemiology and health-care administration will review the
>most up-to-date evidence in their own field. The panel of experts will
>weight the evidence and produce a consensus statement at the end of
>the meeting, which will also be disseminated widely amongst clinicians
>and health-care administrators. Ample time will be devoted to discussion.
>Full deliberations of the panel will be published at a later date.
