Tinnitus (ringing in the ears) is highly prevalent, and yet standards of clinical care for tinnitus do not exist. Consequently, tinnitus clinical care is haphazard, leaving individuals seeking help for their tinnitus at a disadvantage. These individuals need accurate information about the realities of tinnitus management, which should be made available by health care providers. This report reviews the key concerns related to clinical care for tinnitus and provides recommendations for all health care practitioners to provide their patients with useful and cost-effective information. A toolkit of resources is provided to facilitate the process of dispensing this information.
