What problem is the COMIT'ID study trying to solve?
Tinnitus research continues to evolve. While good news, this presents challenges. Tinnitus research varies widely in what is measured, how it is measured and what is reported. This makes it difficult to understand what treatments work, how they work and who for.
We are seeking to change this by developing a fixed list of aspects of tinnitus, known as a “Core Outcome Set” that should be measured and reported in all future trials of tinnitus treatments.
We will work with people who have tinnitus, healthcare professionals and tinnitus researchers to agree on a list of which aspects (or ‘outcomes’) of tinnitus should be included in the Core Outcome Set.
