We had a valuable opportunity to promote the work of the Deafness Research UK Advisory Service as well as updating our knowledge of the latest tinnitus research at a recent British Society of Audiology meeting.
Held at the UCL Ear Institute in London, the meeting began with delegates - mainly audiologists, clinicians and researchers – being given the chance to mingle and find out more about our leaflets and factsheets on tinnitus and related conditions. Leading researchers in the field followed with four presentations on understanding the mechanisms of tinnitus.
They looked at tinnitus pitch and audiometric variables, access pathways for tinnitus patients and paediatric and adult case studies.
Information presented at the meeting will be incorporated into the next edition of Deafness Research UK’s tinnitus research update leaflet.
