The Course in Ear Wax Removal (Irrigation) 11030 – Enhancing Ear Health Assessment and Clinical Practice

The Course in Ear Wax Removal (Irrigation) 11030 NAT – Enhancing Ear Health Assessment and Clinical Practice was attended by our ear and eye health team on Monday, 24th July, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, at Quest Dubbo, 22 Bultje Street, Dubbo NSW 2830. This event successfully equipped our team with the essential skills to confidently support Ear Wax Removal (Irrigation) while enhancing Ear Health Assessment, prioritizing safe clinical practices, and ensuring workplace readiness with a profound understanding of evolving treatment considerations and efficient processes.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Gain comprehensive knowledge of the ear’s basic anatomy and function, including the key landmarks of the tympanic membrane.
  • Develop the ability to assess the ear thoroughly, enabling precise wax management decisions while identifying potential risks and risk management strategies.
  • Recognize and manage complications that may arise during ear irrigation, ensuring proper documentation and follow-up procedures.
  • Acquire the competencies necessary for successful ear irrigation.

Benchmarque Group, a leading Ear Health training provider, successfully conducted an accredited Ear Irrigation face-to-face workshop in response to the high demand for this course in the Western and Northern Regions. Held on the 24th of July in Dubbo, the workshop was attended by clinical staff from five ACCHS, including Gilgandra Aboriginal Medical Service, Orange Aboriginal Medical Service, Tamworth Aboriginal Medical Service, Durri Aboriginal Corporation Medical Service, and Waminda.

Upon completion of the course, participants have gained the skills and knowledge required to safely perform ear assessments, assessed on the day by a clinical trainer, and are now accredited in ear wax removal (irrigation). This accreditation equips them to be workplace-ready. The overwhelming interest expressed by ACCHS staff has led to further plans to upskill and pursue the recommended training in the Course in Ear Wax Removal (Microsuction).
