Abstract

The overwhelming burden of otitis media (middle ear inflammation, OM) and the consequences of hearing loss on social and educational outcomes in Indigenous children are indisputable. Our CRE_ICHEAR is a multidisciplinary group of Australia’s experts in OM research, policy and practice guidelines. The CRE will derive better value in terms of discovery, translation and sustainability. Increased Indigenous leadership will raise awareness and advocacy, with greater efficiency of research translation
