BSA pauses consultation on aural care (wax removal)

The British Society of Audiology (BSA) had recently launched a consultation on ‘Practice Guidance on Aural Care (Wax Removal)’

Following initial feedback, the BSA paused its consultation and now plans to work with a range of stakeholders before relaunching the consultation.

David Welbourn, BSHAA Chief Executive, has welcomed the decision to pause the consultation stating:

“Following constructive discussions with BSA, we were delighted that they readily agreed an appropriate way forward. By withdrawing the initial draft and paving the way for experts in other techniques to join as co-authors to prepare a new draft for release, we are confident that a new version will undoubtedly lead to a very helpful addition to the range of best practice guidance for which the BSA is highly regarded.”

Update: 10 May 2017

On 10 May 2017 the BSA issued another update, confirming this consultation would not relaunch until after NICE publishes its guidance on adult hearing loss later in 2017.
