MELO, Tatiana Mendes de  e  ALVARENGA, Kátia de Freitas. The training of health professionals in hearing health: a systematic review. Rev. soc. bras. fonoaudiol. [online]. 2009, vol.14, n.2, pp.280-286. ISSN 1982-0232.

The aim of this study was to evaluate the training of health professionals regarding hearing health, through a systematic literature review. The bibliographic search was carried out in scientific database (Lilacs, SciELO, Medline, Scopus, Embase, Science Direct Online and Web of Science), online journals on audiology, proceedings from Brazilian conventions, and libraries from Brazilian universities, using specific keywords in order to find all the possible studies matching the proposed question. The studies that matched these criteria were selected and evaluated according to the following aspects: type of study, participants, intervention adopted and outcomes evaluation. After reading the selected manuscripts, they were summarized in a protocol and classified according to level of evidence and recommendation degree. Five studies were included in the systematic review. The results showed a shortage of researches that emphasize this topic, but the analysis of the articles demonstrated that the training of health professionals in hearing health is effective, increasing their knowledge on the theme and, consequently, enabling them to identify patients at risk for hearing loss and to refer these individuals to specific evaluation.
