Tinnitus care is a challenging area of audiologic practice, often requiring more time and know-how than many clinicians feel able to provide in a busy clinical setting. This full-day course will examine patient variables that can contribute to the severity of tinnitus, including hyperacusis and psychological disorders; what audiologists can do to provide and direct patients to a comprehensive program of care; and how to build a team of care providers. We will also discuss barriers to effective treatment, trouble-shooting with instrument fitting, reimbursement for tinnitus management, up-and-coming tinnitus treatments, care for the care provider and some of the benefits of including tinnitus care in clinical practice. This course is designed for health-care professionals with a basic knowledge of the tinnitus mechanisms and their diagnostic significance and with some prior experience working with this patient population.

This workshop is eligible for SAC CEEs.
