This brochure, which is a supplement to the Document “Update on Infant Hearing Screening Programmes (Level 1. Detection): CODEPEH 2018 recommendations”, indicates three fundamental points for updating in infant hearing screening programmes, focused on their level 1 (Detection) and based on the latest scientific evidence: the review of technological options, the study of methods and strategies to be adopted to reduce the rate of non-adherence (loss of cases in the process) supported by these programmes, and congenital cytomegalovirus infection.  

It also highlights the need for an integrated database and the involvement of a coordinated interdisciplinary team focused on the family.  

Finally, it indicates that it should be integrated into combined screening in the future: auditory screening, genetic study and cytomegalovirus study, for a full diagnosis and early treatment of childhood deafness.
