Tools for Assessing Tinnitus

Tinnitus, commonly referred to as “ringing in the ears,” occurs for a variety of reasons and may be temporary, intermittent, or constant. The presence of tinnitus may have a significant life impact, depending on the severity of the tinnitus, personality factors, and other issues that affect the person’s daily activities. As there is no instrumental method to assess tinnitus at this time, questionnaires are commonly used to determine the presence and severity of tinnitus and to inform intervention. This journal self-study explores a number of tinnitus screening tools that have been developed to improve existing evaluation processes and increase assessment options. Audiologists who work with adults with tinnitus will learn more about available instruments, including how to access them, if possible, as well as factors to consider when counseling individuals with this disorder.

Learning Outcomes
You will be able to:

  • explain the types of tinnitus, causes, and how it is diagnosed
