Have you had support for your tinnitus or do you provide this support?

My name is Rachel Withers and I am a Rehabilitative Audiology postgraduate student from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh.

I am undertaking a research project for my Master’s dissertation, entitled: Comparing the views of individuals living with tinnitus and professionals working with tinnitus on the importance of information to make informed decisions about tinnitus management.

The purpose of this quantitative study is to investigate the use of information within tinnitus management within the United Kingdom.

I’m looking for both adults living with tinnitus and professionals providing tinnitus support to complete a short questionnaire about information used within tinnitus support. It should take no more than 20 minutes to complete.

All responses will be anonymised and results may be published in a journal or presented at a conference.

To take part:

Individuals living with tinnitus:

If you have received tinnitus support in the UK and would like to participate in the project please follow the link below.

To participate you should have good understanding of English and have seen or spoken to a tinnitus specialist who provided you with information about tinnitus and tinnitus management.

Survey for individuals
