Welcome to TINNET: An Action for Better Understanding the Heterogeneity of Tinnitus to Improve and Develop New Treatments

TINNET Management Committee in Brussels, 19 January 2015

On july 4th 2014 in Athens, Greece (hosted by the University of Athens) the first WG1 "Clinical' was attended by 17 participants. The countries represented were: Greece, The Netherlands, Portugal, Italy, Spain, Sweden, Poland, The Czech Republic, Romania, and Malta.

The meeting proved very productive in that it led to consensus-based decisions about the work-group aims, yearly estimated progress of our work group,  rich brainstorm sessions, a plan of action for the coming years, and a first step in the development of a questionnaire. Data gathered from a variety of clinicians across Europe by means of this questionnaire will lead to a description of the 'Clinical' status quo in Europe in tinnitus healthcare & assessment in the first year. Combining these results a stepped-care tinnitus health-care and assessment proposal will be drafted. This proposal will be assessed by using the 'Delphi' method, after which we aim to provide a description of 'Consensus-based, harmonized, and adaptive guidelines for demographic and clinical assessment of tinnitus-patients' by the end of the TINNET project.
