Screen Stocks

To investigate stocks for potential investment according to a predetermined set of criteria. For example, an investor may screen stocks according to the lowest price, the most market capitalization, the most favorable price-earnings ratio, or any number of other variables. One may also combine criteria while screening stocks. The process is designed to help one make the best investment decisions, and is often accomplished with the help of a computer.

This HPCSA position statement endorses UNHS as the ideal approach to achieve early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI) goals.
However, UNHS in these facilities was only widely accepted in 2009.
Sixteen (67%) reported to be involved in 'targeted' (where only neonates with risk factors are screened) NHS programmes, while 8 (33%) conducted UNHS programmes; 7 of them were employed at tertiary healthcare facilities, which indicates that 'targeted' NHS is the predominant approach used within the hospital context.
In the Free State, targeted hearing screening services are available at 2 hospitals and 1 clinic in the public health service, while UNHS is available at 3 private hospitals.
The current status of NHS [3] coupled with manpower-related challenges may possibly suggest that UNHS is currently not applicable in the SA context, particularly in the public healthcare sector, where over 80% of the population receives healthcare.
[6] Internationally, positing universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) as a function of early hearing detection and intervention (EHDI) has been accepted as a measure of best practice pertaining to child healthcare [1] and has also been highlighted as the favoured approach for private and public sector hearing healthcare.
As a result of limited budget allocation and resources, universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) is extremely limited in developing countries such as South Africa.
Universal newborn hearing screening (UNHS) has been identified as the recommended protocol for EHDI, particularly in developed countries.
