Telehealth for Tinnitus

Presenter(s): Richard Tyler, PhD

Duration: 60 minutes

CEUs: 0.10 AAA/Tier 1 

Instructional Level:  Intermediate 

Program Focus: Skills

Learning Outcomes: Upon completion, each participant in the eAudiology Web Seminar will be able to:

  1. Describe the importance of connecting to the patient.
  2. List advantages and disadvantages or audio versus audiovisual connection.
  3. Describe how to use Tinnitus Activities Treatment via telehealth


Connecting with tinnitus patients remotely can be convenient for your patients and you!  The same principles are important about connecting; being a good listener, and showing that you care.  Audio connections can be easier; audiovisual can be preferable for others.  Our clinic brochure offers 30- and 60-minute sessions.  Sometimes they complete our Tinnitus Primary Functions Questionnaire before.  Audio-visually, we can show images from our Tinnitus Activities Treatment in a structured counseling approach. Telehealth can precede and follow clinic visits, where hearing aids and sound therapy devices are provided.
