Audiologists are experts in auditory health. Therefore, they are qualified to assess, diagnose (restricted in some provinces/territories) and manage individuals with hearing loss, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), balance disorders and other auditory disorders. In New Brunswick, all audiologists must be members of the New Brunswick Association of Speech-Language Pathologists and Audiologists.

Audiologists screen, assess, identify and treat hearing loss, auditory processing disorders, tinnitus and other auditory disorders as well as balance problems for people of all ages.

Vitalité Health Network provides audiology services at no cost to individuals of all ages, hospitalized or not.
