AB  - OBJECTIVE: An understanding of parental knowledge and attitudes towards childhood
      hearing loss is essential to the successful implementation of audiology services.
      The present study aimed to investigate parental knowledge and attitudes among
      parents in the Solomon Islands. METHODS AND MATERIALS: A total of 100 mothers and
      50 fathers were administered a questionnaire via semi-structured interviews.
      RESULTS: Highest parental awareness of aetiology of childhood hearing loss was
      noted for otitis media (94%), noise exposure (87.3%), and family history (72.7%).
      The highest parental awareness concerning public health initiatives to
      reduce/prevent otitis media was noted for routine childhood immunizations (84%)
      and breast-feeding (76%). Higher rates of knowledge in fathers than in mothers
      included otitis media (p = 0.038), noise exposure (p = 0.007), and breast-feeding
      (p = 0.031). Approximately half of parents (56%) agreed that curses may cause
      hearing loss. Overall parental responses showed positive support for infant
      hearing screening programs (96%) and school-based ear and hearing health
      examinations (99.3%). CONCLUSIONS: High levels of parental readiness and support 
      for childhood hearing services in the Solomon Islands was evident. Knowledge of
      aetiology of childhood hearing loss was highest for otitis media, noise exposure,
      and family history. Knowledge and attitudes of fathers to childhood hearing loss 
      and hearing services was either the same or better than that of mothers.
