May 24, 2014: Preliminary results of the cultural validation and adaptation of the Lithuanian version of Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI)

At the 6th Baltic Congress of Otorhinolaryngologists the Lithuanian TINNET group presented the TINNET action and preliminary results of the cultural validation and adaptation of the Lithuanian version of Tinnitus Handicap Inventory.

As for the first step in the activities of TINNET the Lithuanian group worked on the translation of the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI) to Lithuanian language, determining the validity of a Lithuanian translation of the Tinnitus Handicap Inventory (THI)  by Newman et al. in order to make this self-report measure of perceived tinnitus handicap available both for clinical and research purposes in our country and to contribute to its cross-cultural validation.
