e-learning – Tinnitus

10th June 2020 by Dr Louise Hudman

e-learning – Tinnitus

This is a new guideline from NICE published in Mar 2020 on the management of tinnitus.

I will summarise the advice below. There isn’t much new in this for us, but I would highlight that they encourage us to explore a patient’s mental health from their initial presentation.

What advice and information can we give to patients?

We can reassure patients that:

  • Tinnitus is common.
  • It may resolve by itself.
  • It is commonly associated with hearing loss, but isn’t commonly associated with other physical conditions.
  • A variety of strategies can help patients with their symptoms.
