About the AOSIS published book ‘Complexities and challenges in preventive audiology: An African perspective’
This book is a sequel to another book edited by Katijah Khoza-Shangase, Preventive Audiology: An African Perspective. While editing that book, she identified a gap in the contextually relevant collection of evidence on complexities and challenges faced by the field of audiology within the African context in implementing preventive audiology existed.
This book aims to delve into these complexities and challenges for various key areas in audiology (EHDI, Ototoxicity, Occupational noise-induced hearing loss, and middle ear pathologies).
All chapters deliberate on evidence-based perspectives grounded in the African context, with deliberate and preferential reliance on contemporary locally relevant evidence that accurately reflects current complexities and challenges in the ear and hearing care delivery within the African context.
Complexities brought about by context, such as cultural and linguistic diversity as well as traditional and alternative healthcare, on preventive audiology within the South African context, are also covered in this book.
As each chapter explores prevailing complexities and challenges, potential solutions and recommendations for all challenges identified are also offered, having carefully and deliberately engaged with local evidence, local context, and local policies and regulations to ensure an Afrocentric contribution to the world of evidence.
All chapters in the book aim to ensure that increased efforts are directed towards the provision of clinical services driven through best practice by contextually relevant and responsive evidence.
