Recommendation ID

What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of psychological therapies for people who are d/Deaf or who have a severe-to-profound hearing loss and tinnitus-related distress?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

CBT is a psychological therapy that is usually delivered to individuals with tinnitus by psychologists. However, individuals who present with tinnitus commonly see nonpsychologists (e.g. audiologists) and there are many more non-psychologists than
psychologists working in the tinnitus field. Costs could be reduced and access to CBT could be improved if appropriately trained non-psychologists were able to deliver CBT. There is currently insufficient evidence to recommend this.
