My name is Harriet Smith. I am a PhD Student at the NIHR Nottingham Biomedical Research Centre working on a British Tinnitus Association-funded study about tinnitus in children.

My research aims to create a new questionnaire that will help doctors, audiologists and other healthcare workers to understand tinnitus better. 

I am looking for children with tinnitus (aged 8-16) to help me create the questionnaire and test it, to see if it works.

Current research opportunities

For children with tinnitus (aged 8-16)

Individual questionnaire discussion:

  • 30 to 60-minute activity and discussion conducted by myself (Harriet)
  • Location: Bolton, Nottingham, or London
  • Children will be asked to complete a new questionnaire that aims to measure the impact of tinnitus on their life. They will be asked to tell us how easy it is to understand and complete, and tell us how we can improve it.
  • Children will receive a £10 voucher for taking part.

If you are interested in taking part, please read the information sheets below.

There are two information sheets:

1. Information for parents/guardians:

Info for PArents/GUARDIANS

2. Information for children


Current research opportunities

If your child can't make a face-to-face research session, they can register to take part in an upcoming study where they can help to test the questionnaire by completing it at home. The new study will launch in January 2020.
