To learn more about the tinnitus studies currently being conducted at the University of Iowa, please call 319-353-8760. Individuals interested in participating in a tinnitus study should complete our online questionnaire, which will help us determine your eligibility.
As part of our ongoing research, we invite our patients to complete surveys about their experience with tinnitus, If you are interested in sharing information about your condition, please consider completing this survey.
Some people report that many sounds are too loud for them, however these same sounds do not appear too loud to others. This is called hyperacusis. We invite you to participate in a survey with the hope of understanding and better treating hyperacusis. You must be 18 years of age or older to complete this survey.
The Department of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery has created a series of questionnaires that may be useful for health care professionals working with patients who experience tinnitus. These questionnaires may be used to identify a specific area of a patient's life that are affected by tinnitus, as well as monitor a patient's progress with a particular treatment. Translations of these questionnaires are also available in a growing number of languages.
Below you will find different counseling presentations that relate to the thoughts and emotions, hearing and communication, sleep, and concentration abilities for people experiencing tinnitus. Within each presentation are activities to complete following the counseling. In addition, there is a review for each counseling section that is typically completed at the beginning of the subsequent follow-up appointment.
