What is the most clinically and cost-effective tinnitus questionnaire to assess tinnitus in people with a learning disability or cognitive impairment?
- Any explanatory notes
There is currently variation in how tinnitus is assessed in people with learning disability or cognitive impairment. It is important that effective tinnitus questionnaires for this population are identified to ensure that healthcare professionals are well-equipped and that care is standardised across the UK. Use of an effective questionnaire can consequently inform the development of a management plan, allow an appropriate appraisal of tinnitus burden, to allow triage, and to monitor change (i.e. outcomes of management strategies). The committee were unaware of existing questionnaires and so new research should develop and test questionnaires for people with learning disability or cognitive impairment with tinnitus.
