Do you have tinnitus or hearing loss?

February 3rd, 2016

The Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit are looking for participants in an interview, the purpose of which is to help them explore young adults’ attitudes, behaviours and knowledge towards leisure noise exposure.

You are eligible to participate if you:

  • have a hearing loss and/or tinnitus
  • are aged 18 – 35 years
  • are able to hear conversation-level speech in a quiet environment (wearing hearing aids is okay)

You will be asked how your hearing problems have affected your participation in ‘loud’ activities, or use of hearing protection. Your feedback will be used to help the unit develop new strategies to improve awareness of leisure noise exposure and use of hearing protection among young adults.

You will take part in one interview lasting up to one hour with the researcher – there are no right or wrong answers. You will be given a £20 Amazon voucher for your time, and the interview can be conducted in your own home at a time convenient for you.

If you are interested or have any qistions, please contact Dr Abby McCormack at 0115 823 2611 or email
