Social engagement survey study

We've launched a new survey to assess a questionnaire for its use in measuring the impact of hearing loss on social engagement.

What will I need to do if I take part?

Taking part in this study involves:

  1. Completing an online survey, which contains a small number of questionnaires, at your earliest convenience.
  2. Approximately two weeks after you have completed the survey, we will email you to ask you to complete a second online survey that contains just one short questionnaire

How will I benefit if I take part?

You may not benefit personally from being in this research study. However, your views will help to improve the questionnaire that we have created so that it can be used in audiology clinics in the future to measure whether interventions for hearing loss can improve social engagement.

If you choose to take part in this study, you will be entered into a prize draw, with the chance of winning one of three high-street vouchers to the values of £75, £50, and £25.


This project is part of the work of the Mild to Moderate Hearing Loss theme, led by Dr Mel Ferguson.
