While more centres are beginning to ask children whether they experience tinnitus, feeling confident in managing those children can take us out of our comfort zone. Over the years of developing the service in Nottingham, a large resource base has been developed to support the needs of both patients and clinicians in managing tinnitus, anxiety, and the impact these can have on a child behaviourally.

During Claire’s talk at the BAA Annual Conference – What’s in your toolkit? Resources for managing tinnitus in children – delegates are encouraged to bring their phone or tablet to access these webpages and download what they want whilst Claire is talking!

On this page you can download resources that Claire makes reference to in her presentation, as well as an Amazon shopping list for all books mentioned in one handy place. All this with top tips on how to use them to support your clinics and make you feel more at ease!
