It is time for Quebec to be the frontrunner in Universal newborn hearing screening. A screening rate of less than 50% is well below the passing grade. This grade means that, as a modern society, we are failing over 50% of our children. The Quebec newborn hearing screening program (PQDSN), implemented in 2009, was a first step towards improvement. We are now in 2022, it is time that the knowledge acquired during the last 13 years leads us to aim for nothing less than excellence, that is to say 100% screening rate!
Make your voice seen and heard by participating in our initiative. The government will not believe its eyes and ears!
