The program aims to raise awareness and understanding of the impact of ear disease in children, and treat it where it occurs. The program team works with communities to make sure children can hear, talk and learn.

The My trip to hospital resource package is for children and their families, to inform them of the surgery process when they have been identified as requiring ear surgery. The resource package includes a DVD, iPad and iPad applications and after hospital care activity books.
The resource package was developed by the Deadly ears program, lead by occupational therapists and with the support of key community champions and the broader Deadly ears team. A participatory approach was used to develop the resource package and will be used in the Queensland community.
