Recommendations for Clinical Care Guidelines on the Management of Otitis Media in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Populations has been added to the Guidelines list on CKN. This is the current version of the Guidelines, last updated on the 1st April 2010.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health staff working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families are likely to have the greatest impact on severe otitis media (OM). Otitis media refers to inflammation and infection of the middle ear space. It is a complex condition associated with both illness and hearing loss.

The guidelines are intended for health care professionals who work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander populations. This includes Aboriginal Health Workers, Aboriginal ear health workers, primary care and specialist physicians, nurses, remote area nurses and nurse practitioners, audiologists, audiometrists, speech therapists, and child development specialists (including Advisory Visiting Teachers and Teachers of the Deaf). 

The guidelines are also suitable to be adopted for use in local clinical practice guidelines and standard treatment protocols.
