Unification of Treatments and Interventions for Tinnitus Patients - UNITI

We're delighted to join in the busy campaigning for the international Tinnitus Awareness Week 2020, from February 3 to 9, 2020!

A commom initiative by important institutions and organisations in the field, like the British Tinnitus Association (BTA) and our consortium member Tinnitus Hub, it has become a week of intensive outreach to make the common, yet widely unknown condition of tinnitus, more of a priority in healthcare and science.

Fittingly, this year's main focus will be on tinnitus research, with petitions and other initiatives to raise awareness for the need of more funding in this area, especially in order to enhance treatment options for patients, exactly what UNITI sets out to do! Therefore, we will be, throughout the week, presenting our clinical research centres that will carry out Europe's largest randomised-controlled trial on tinnitus as of yet.

In order to stay updated on all developments during the week, we invite you to have a look at updates here on our website, and to follow our channels on Twitter and Facebook that will be connected to other initiatives with the common hashtag #TinnitusWeek!

Dr Raj Shekhawat, associate professor for audiology at University College London (UCL) and speaker of our project advisory board, recently presented UNITI and its ambitions to the participants of the renowned UCL Tinnitus and Hyperacusis Masterclass!

Thank you very much for making UNITI known in this extraordinary setting! 

Furthermore, Dr Shekhawat also recorded a short summary presentation of UNITI at our recent Kick-Off Meeting in Athens, to be accessed here (YouTube).

Tinnitus TalkWe were delighted to welcome Tinnitus Hub, the most important online information platform for tinnitus patients as well as support group, with their forum Tinnitus Talk, and their director Hazel Goedhart, to our UNITI Kick-Off-Meeting in Athens (see report here).

We are especially grateful that Hazel will contribute her perspective and invalualbe experience to UNITI as a member of the project Advisory Board. Hazel now kindly shared relevant information and her views on Tinnitus Talk, and the corresponding forum thread can be accessed and contributed to here.

We thank Hazel and all the Tinnitus Hub team very much for their input and are immensely looking forward to working closely and fruitfully with this and the other patient organisations involved in UNITI towards a better understanding and treatment of the condition.
