  1. The message that patients feel reassured and ‘treated’, by hearing from a professional that their tinnitus is not a threat to their health ( in the majority of cases) is an important management tool. The resources provided in the article will be useful in clinical practice, for patient self-management. Thanks.

  2. Reassurance is most important. Encouraging the patient not to “listen” for their tinnitus also helps discourage focusing on the problem. Treatment options remain limited and are expensive when accessed commercial hearing aid services. Patient and physician resources in various countries are useful. A common problem with little real research into curative treatments.
