Development of a progressive audiologic tinnitus management program for Veterans with tinnitus

Paula J. Myers, PhD, et al.

Tinnitus is the most common service-connected disability among Veterans. Tinnitus management has been inconsistent across Department of Veterans Affairs hospitals. This study developed and tested a tinnitus- management protocol to help Veterans manage their reactions to tinnitus. Five hierarchical levels of care were defined and named the “Progressive Audiologic Tinnitus Management” model. Staff training and patient education materials were developed and the model was tested with audiology patients at the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital. The model was easily implemented within this busy Audiology clinic and helped Veterans manage their tinnitus.
