Impact of hearing loss on family members – Edinburgh survey

A Edinburgh student is investigating the impact of hearing loss on family members as part of her university dissertation.

Abbey Anderson, who is studying audiology at Queen Margaret University, is looking for individual to support her research by completing an online survey.

The study looks at how family members are affected by hearing loss and how their experiences can be used to support future auditory rehabilitation.

Participants must have normal hearing levels and reside or frequently visit a person who has a hearing loss in the Edinburgh area. All answers are treated anonymously and takes approximately 25 minutes to complete.

Alternatively, please email Abbey directly at for further information.

Participants can choose to be entered into a £50 Amazon prize draw on completion of the survey.
