Research Studies - Participants Wanted
The following projects are currently recruiting participants:
The CROSSSD Study group at the Nottingham Hearing Biomedical Research Centre, UK are conducting an international consensus survey aiming to find agreement on what outcomes are critical and important to measure when evaluating interventions for single-sided deafness. They are interested in opinions from patients diagnosed with SSD as well as expert professionals in the field.
If you would like to take part please click here. Once you register you will be asked to score a total of 44 outcomes on a 1-9 importance scale. This should take approximately 30 minutes. A similar questionnaire will be re-distributed for completion in a few weeks.
Forming a ‘core set’ of outcomes that are important to both patients and professionals will have applications in guiding the use of outcome measures in clinical trials. Ultimately this will reduce research waste and will improve decision making for hearing aids or auditory implants recommendations for SSD.
The study was recently featured in ‘My Hearing Loss’ Blog by Carly Sygrove who, as a person with SSD, describes her experience in completing the survey.
If you need more information please contact Roulla Katiri. The study will be open until mid-November 2019.
