Evaluation of online assessment for tinnitus in nonclinical settings: comparison with two established methods
Location: Regional Academic Health Center C1021z or Zoom: https://iu.zoom.us/j/83661142942
We encourage in-person attendance whenever possible. Zoom is an option for those who cannot be physically present.
With the advancement of digital technologies, the potential of providing health services over internet for people with tinnitus (i.e. ringing in the ears) has attracted growing attention in the recent years. It is assumed to hold promise in delivering convenient services without the restriction of time and place, and solving the mismatch between great demand for audiological services and limited capacity of professionals. However, it is not clear if the quality of online services is comparable to that of face-to-face services. In this study, two widely used methods (i.e. clinical bracketing method and similarity rating method) were selected to examine the reliability of online assessment for tinnitus pitch. Participants with tinnitus completed the measurement of tinnitus pitch both in the lab and from home. No significant difference at group level was observed in the comparison between lab part and online part. High within-subject reliability was found. These results indicate that online testing is a possible approach for tinnitus measurement.
