Free Tinnitus and Hearing Health Show
An information event for members of the public affected by Tinnitus and/or Hearing Difficulty.
Come and join us for a day filled with helpful talks about Tinnitus (noises in the ears or head), Hyperacusis (intolerance or sensitivity to sounds) and Hearing Loss (how to maximise and maintain good hearing). There will be information about local support networks, exciting new listening technology, earwax removal, effective tinnitus treatment and much more! Interactive presentations will be running throughout the day and our expert team will be on hand to answer any questions. The main speaker is Professor David Baguley, president of the BTA (British Tinnitus Association) and Professor of Hearing Sciences at Nottingham University.
Goals for THIS 2019
- Raise awareness for those with tinnitus, hyperacusis and hearing loss
- Provide useful and practical information including demonstrations
- Offer a clearly defined pathway for treatment after the event
- Highlight web resources and other sources of support
THIS 2019 coincides with Tinnitus Week and its theme this year is Isolation and Loneliness. Tinnitus is surprisingly common and for most people, it is not a problem, however, for some, it can be particularly disruptive or debilitating and isolating, leaving them feeling that no-one understands what they are going through.
Hearing loss is also more common than one might suspect. Most people take more than ten years to accept that their hearing is in decline and often change their lifestyle, almost subconsciously, to allow them to cope. This can lead to social isolation and contribute to the onset of cognitive decline and potentially dementia.
What to Expect at the Show
The show will provide accessible information delivered in a concise and entertaining way. The latest technology will be discussed and demonstrated. There will also be an insight into current research and how this may improve interventions for tinnitus, hearing and hyperacusis.
