The American Academy of Otolarynology – Head and Neck Surgery Foundation just released the first ever clinical practice guideline for the management of tinnitus patients.  It is excellent and I encourage everyone to read it.  It is very comprehensive discussing all mainstream approaches in evaluating and treating tinnitus. To that point there are 263 references crediting virtually all the prominent voices in the field of tinnitus (and hyperacusis).  I applaud the Academy for making this guideline freely available and applaud the American Tinnitus Association for making their membership aware of this important abstract.

Dear friends,

The multiclinic TTTS symptom prevalence study that I have been co-ordinating has now been published in the latest edition of the Noise and Health Journal, along with some of the other papers presented at the TRI meeting in Buffalo, 2011. There is a pdf copy attached for you. Thank you for your interest in this research. I have also presented this study at the Australian Audiology Conference 2012, and at the 1st International Hyperacusis conference in London in March this year.

I am really grateful to the clinics involved that we were able to collaborate together and achieve a truly multi-clinic documentation of symptoms that are common, and have the potential to cause bewilderment, anxiety and sometimes distress to many tinnitus patients, particularly patients who have developed hyperacusis.

Kind regards
