Tinnitus Awareness Week 2018
February 6, 2018
This year’s activity will be based around the campaign ‘Together for Tinnitus’ which is intended to increase our visibility, generate discussion about tinnitus and raise awareness of the work being carried out and support provided.
We will be raising awareness amongst GPs about the condition and the treatment options available, so they feel confident to support patients who are experiencing this often distressing and debilitating condition.
During the week, we will be launching our official ‘Tinnitus Guidance for GPs’ document which will provide the most up-to-date information on how people suffering with tinnitus can best be helped from diagnosis through to self-help management of the condition. In addition, we are promoting our new online resource which for people newly diagnosed with tinnitus www.takeontinnitus.co.uk. Take on Tinnitus is designed to give you facts and ideas for things you can do to manage tinnitus and is an ideal resource for GPs to suggest to new tinnitus patients.
If you are a professional working with tinnitus patients, please do get in touch and request an information pack to display. If you dont work with tinnitus patients but just want to help raise awareness in your local area you can email Emily Broomhead at the BTA for more information via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any member of the public, or professional can also help us raise awareness of the condition, and the support available, by doing any or all of the suggestions below in the run up to and during TAW:
