New tinnitus management tools from the Ida Institute—two for hearing care professionals and one for consumers—aim to help clinicians and patients handle the challenge of tinnitus.
The Tinnitus Thermometer and the Tinnitus Communication Guide are designed to help clinicians build their counseling skills and apply a holistic approach to care of patients with tinnitus.
The thermometer uses a simple graphic to help patients “measure” or explain how they are experiencing tinnitus, and the guide helps hearing care professionals communicate effectively and compassionately about the disorder.
The tools, grouped together in the Tinnitus First Aid Kit, were developed in partnership with the British Tinnitus Association and a multidisciplinary team representing the U.S., Australia, U.K., Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark and Canada.
The Denmark-based Ida Institute—an independent, nonprofit organization— works with hearing care professionals and people with hearing impairment around the world to promote person-centered hearing care practice.
