Description / Abstract: "This project identified that some experienced corrections officers have developed communication skills that help them communicate more effectively with inmates with hearing loss and that the use of amplification devices can lessen communication problems experienced by inmates with hearing loss. These results suggest there are potential benefits in addressing widespread hearing loss among NT Indigenous inmates. These benefits include improved inmate management practices and enhanced wellbeing among inmates, as well as better rehabilitation outcomes and lower levels of recidivism." - Executive Summary
