Noise exposure focus group – earn £20 Amazon voucher

November 9th, 2015

Do you visit venues with loud noise, or listen to personal music players?

There is some evidence that frequent leisure noise exposure can pose a significantly higher risk of hearing problems. The Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Unit invite you to participate in a focus group, the purpose of which is to help us explore young adults’ attitudes, behaviours and knowledge towards leisure noise exposure.

Participants should:

  • be aged 18 – 35 years
  • be able to hear conversation-level speech in a quiet environment
  • not have a known hearing loss or tinnitus

Your feedback will be used to help us develop new strategies to improve awareness of leisure noise exposure and use of hearing protection among young adults.

You will be in a discussion group with five to eight other people. This study requires a single session for up to one hour – you will receive a £20 Amazon voucher for your time.

If you are interested please email Dr Abby McCormack or phone 0115 823 2611 with your preferred group:

  • Wednesday 18 November 12pm, Trent Building, University Park
  • Thursday 19 November 12pm, Trent Building, University Park
