A pilot investigation has been conducted by Australian Hearing to assess the feasibility of providing hearing services using tele-audiology to adult clients in remote areas. The services on trial included hearing assessment, hearing aid fitting, and hearing rehabilitation. The equipment used for remote area services, the personnel required, and the methodology used are outlined. Case studies are presented and implications for future needs discussed.
