Prof David Baguley will discuss his research project - 'Why is there no cure for tinnitus?' - in this BSHAA webinar before taking part in a Q&A session with BSHAA Vice President Raul Garcia-Medina.
The webinar is free of charge and open to all. It will be of interest to clinicians, including ENT practitioners, GPs, audiologists and general healthcare practitioners with an interest in tinnitus. People living with tinnitus, and their friends and family, will also find the webinar useful.
Prof David Baguley on 'Why is there no cure for tinnitus?'
The research project looked at the many barriers to the development of a cure for tinnitus so that people could be interested, inspired and engaged and make some real progress in the area. Prof Baguley's fellow authors on the project were ear surgeon Don McFerran; Ralph Holme, director of research at Action on Hearing Loss; the chief executive of the British Tinnitus Association, David Stockdale; and Charles Larg, CEO of pharmaceutical company Autifony Therapeutics.
Prof Baguley says: "It's been really heartening to see tens of thousands of people accessing the research, but disheartening to see how far research activity for tinnitus lags behind conditions such as depression and anxiety."
