The current status of the scientific literature highlights a serious lack of studies estimating, in detail, the economic burden of tinnitus on healthcare systems, patients, their families and society. One of our tasks in UNITI is to try to solve this gap by running a study. As part of our study we have created a survey that should be completed by patients suffering from tinnitus. With this survey we hope to gain insight into the financial burden to the individual, as well as to society, associated with suffering from tinnitus with the final aim to obtain an estimate of the health care costs associated with tinnitus.
Help us assess the health care costs associated to tinnitus by disseminating our survey to tinnitus patients! The survey is available here: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/TinnitusSocioeconomicBurden
The approximate time to complete this survey is estimated to 20 minutes.
