Abstract

INTRODUCTION: In 2005, a nationwide programme on hearing screening in newborns was launched in Denmark. The purpose of the programme was to ensure early detection of hearing loss in newborns and to institute subsequent treatment. The aim of this study was to assess whether the Central Denmark Region observes the guidelines of the Danish Health and Medicines Authority (DHMA) for neonatal hearing. In addition, we wanted to identify factors that may influence screening density positively or negatively. METHODS: Data were collected retrospectively from patient record forms completed in the 2006-2014 period. For selected periods, patient record forms were examined manually.
