Presenter: James Henry, PhD
CEUs: 0.3/Tier 1
Duration: 3 hours
Learner Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web seminar will be able to:
- Describe the conclusions of Cochrane reviews with respect to methods of tinnitus management.
- Describe the recommendations of the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head & Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) with respect to methods of tinnitus management.
- Describe a universal protocol for providing tinnitus management services that is based on research evidence.
Clinical management of tinnitus has involved a broad array of diverse methods, without standards to guide best practice. Since 2010, Cochrane reviews and the American Academy of Otolaryngology – Head & Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF) have examined the literature and reported on methods having an evidence base. Their recommendations will be discussed along with the challenges of implementing them in the clinic. More recent research impacting on these recommendations will also be discussed with an eye toward consensual tinnitus management guidelines.
