Friday 3/30/12 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Type: Research Poster
Track: Neuro-Audiology
CEUs: 0.6

Description:
A survey was conducted with 153 people with tinnitus to determine distress experienced, interaction with health practitioners, and linkages to other health conditions. Sixty percent sought diagnosis, but only 31% of these were offered treatment. Significant correlations were found between various health conditions, e.g., PTSD, depression, chronic pain, and tinnitus distress and health status. Seeking diagnosis correlated to tinnitus distress and health status. A holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment is indicated.
