Whenever you visit one of the Earworx clinics around the country, you are in safe hands with our experienced and compassionate team of nurses. Our staff are Registered Nurses with backgrounds in various areas of healthcare, including at major hospitals and medical clinics throughout Australia. They are experts in wax impaction and ear cleaning, and able to provide our safe, pain-free and highly effective micro-suctioning service to you.
All of our professional staff have undertaken a Nationally Accredited Earworx Course in Aural Care and are highly trained in ear care and the micro-suction procedure utilised at Earworx clinics. Earworx nurses complete at least twenty hours of study and a week-long clinical placement prior to beginning work within our team. We provide comprehensive training and continued professional development to ensure our staff are able to work safely within the ear canal and around the eardrum.
We encourage all patients to ask questions and have a detailed discussion about their ears prior to beginning the micro-suction procedure. It is important to us that awareness and knowledge of ear health is increased within the communities that we are a part of, and we are proud to be contributing to better aural health around Australia.
