Abstract

The study was undertaken within an established cochlear implant (CI) centre, in conjunction with a tertiary Tinnitus Clinic. The primary aim was to identify more readily which CI recipients experience significant tinnitus, by introducing the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI). A secondary aim was to pilot a specialist joint clinic for CI users with tinnitus, involving clinicians from both the implant and the tinnitus teams. This paper reports principally on the level of agreement between the centre's established tinnitus self-report measure and the THI.
