COMIT'ID Consensus Workshop

COMIT’ID Study Update November 2017: Core Outcomes Measures in Tinnitus — International Delphi survey

COMIT'ID Core Outcome Measures in Tinnitus

The COMiT’ID study aims to improve the quality of future clinical research by identifying a minimum standard for assessing how a tinnitus treatment has worked. COMiT’ID has involved the global tinnitus community with over 600 people taking part from over 40 countries. Thank you for all your support!

Here we share with you the main findings of our study.

Three separate online consensus surveys have now been completed to identify how sound-, psychology- and drug-based tinnitus treatments should be commonly assessed before and after treatment. A wide range of people took part based on their experience with one or more of these treatment types. These included people with lived experience of tinnitus, healthcare professionals, researchers, industry experts and funders of tinnitus research.

Tinnitus Survey to Steer Research?

Can Patient Sensing Help Steer Research?

We’ve all filled out surveys before, plenty of them probably. The thing is what do we usually gain from them? We rarely get to see the results or feel like what we did really made a difference.

Our first survey isn’t going to disappear, full results are being published on Tinnitus Talk for all to view and it’s a first step into a larger project to learn more about our tinnitus and what we can do about it.

When we analyse the treatment data we’re hoping that we can give you some real insight, things that may help you to think about what treatments may help you. We’ve got over 5,000 responses, giving us a really big pool of people that can tell us what has worked and what hasn’t.
