Tinnitus Awareness Week: 3-7 February

Ringing in the ears and not being heard…

For tinnitus, better known as ringing in the ears, a cognitive behavioural therapy developed by UM researchers is the best treatment option. Last year, researcher Rilana Cima was buried in media requests, because ‘their’ treatment was added to basic health insurance coverage in the Netherlands and designated as the ‘standard treatment’ by the European treatment directive for tinnitus. But this is no time for Cima to sit still because tinnitus care can still be improved in many ways, as was shown in one of the recent studies she participated in.
