Rachel Withers is a Rehabilitative Audiology postgraduate student from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh.

She is undertaking a research project for her 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.

She is looking for both adults living with tinnitus and professionals providing tinnitus support to complete a short questionnaire about information used within tinnitus support. The link below is for professionals working with tinnitus and 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.

If you would like to contact an independent person, who knows about this project but is not involved in it, you are welcome to contact Dr Jo White (Programme Leader for MSc (post registration) in Rehabilitative Audiology) at jwhite@qmu.ac.uk

Professionals providing support for individuals with tinnitus, please follow the link below for more information or to complete the survey:
