August 2017 update

Dr Derek Hoare’s study at the University of Nottingham is looking at measuring the impact of tinnitus in children. The project will look at developing a clinical questionnaire specifically for children in order to measure more accurately the distress tinnitus causes them. Clinical questionnaires are used to determine why tinnitus is a problem and to guide clinicians in their treatment and management of tinnitus. This tool will mean children are treated more effectively and accurately giving them better support in the future. The project has now gone through its set up and will commence this autumn.

This is a three-year project costing £67,975
