Deafness screening for newborns introduced at CIUSSS de l’Estrie – CHUS

By Staff Writer

Since June 11, parents of newborns born at Fleurimont Hospital or staying in the neonatology unit have been offered a hearing screening test as part of the Quebec Deafness in Newborns Screening Program (PQDSN). The program, set up by the Ministry of Health and Social Services, is intended to detect early deafness at birth and to undertake the necessary interventions quickly to limit the impact on the child’s development.
