Earbus Foundation of WA earbus program



The Earbus Foundation of WA operates a program of mobile children's ear health clinics in regional WA; programs are operating in the Goldfields and East Pilbara. The Foundation is particularly supportive of programs that detect, diagnose and treat Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children with ear health concerns, delivering a mobile service to this at-risk group of children who traditionally have had limited access to health services.

Mobile clinics travel to rural and remote communities as part of a multidisciplinary ear health team. The Foundation operates in collaboration with the WA Department of Education, Health Department, schools, playgroups, kindergartens and existing service providers to fill any gaps in ear health services in each region where the Foundation operates. Hearing screening, audiology, nurse, GP and ear, nose and throat (ENT) services are available through the Foundation. The program aims to provide diagnostic services and treatment in a holistic multidisciplinary environment.
