Collection and usage attributes
|Guide for use:|
This audiology services dataset is based on version 7 of the audiology services form which was implemented between April 2012 to April 2013. The form contains clinical data collected as part of routine healthcare provided by professionals who delivered these services. Earlier versions of the audiology form were in place between August 2007 and March 2012. Although the various versions of the audiology forms have most of the same questions, there are also some key differences, such as:
The AIHW only receives confidentialised unit record level information on those children for which consent for data provision to AIHW has been obtained.
