Audiology Australia Strategic Directions 2023-28

The future is coming, and change is inevitable. How we respond to the opportunities and challenges ahead will shape our effectiveness and role as Australia’s leading peak accrediting body for audiology.

AudA’s 2023-28 Strategic Directions sets an ambitious blueprint for future growth and impact, positioning AudA and audiology to achieve heightened recognition, regard, reputation, and response.

Opening-up the world of ear and hearing healthcare

By as soon as the 2030s hearing healthcare and audiology will look very different.

We predict:

      • Hearing loss will be more socially accepted and accommodated
      • There will be more specialisation, as well as commodification
      • We will see more innovative and holistic hearing loss solutions
      • There will be greater differentiation and prosperity amongst ear and hearing healthcare businesses
      • Hearing healthcare will focus on earlier intervention, protection and prevention

As we navigate this changing landscape, our role as Australia’s leading peak professional and accrediting body for audiology will remain to support our members and the profession to deliver the highest standards of contemporary hearing healthcare.

That’s why we’ve started working now to be ready to leverage this change as opportunity for growth and impact as we open-up the world of ear and hearing healthcare for the wellbeing of all.
