As the best providers of hearing health care in the country, audiologists are welcoming this opportunity and stepping up to the challenge. This session is intended for audiologists interested in adding tinnitus services to their clinic’s portfolio.
- Describe tinnitus in terms of classification, etiology, associated conditions, impact(s) on quality of life and pathophysiology.
- Describe the prevalence of tinnitus as identified by the Canadian Health Measures Survey.
- Describe components of a comprehensive tinnitus audiological assessment as well as evidence-based tinnitus management options.
