The Science of Healthy Hearing Podcast

Bonus episode: Tinnitus with the Purple Pen podcast

The Science of Healthy Hearing

For this episode of The Science of Healthy Hearing, we are doing something a little bit different.

Recently, Lions Hearing Clinic Audiologist Pia Nairn was interviewed for the Purple Pen Podcast about Tinnitus.

Pia specialises in helping clients with management and treatment of Tinnitus. In our clinics we see clients every day who are struggling with hearing loss and one common issue is Tinnitus. There is a perception among the community, including the medical community, that “there is no cure for tinnitus”, and while that is true, we know there are treatment options that can greatly reduce its impact in daily life.

At Ear Science, we believe that science backed by research and education are key to shifting attitudes and changing mindsets.

In this episode, you will learn

The role of an Audiologist in helping their clients to understand what tinnitus is, what causes it and how to implement strategies to manage it.

When a client works with an Audiologist the impact of tinnitus on daily life can be greatly reduced.

Pia Nairn, Clinical Audiologist at Lions Hearing Clinic

Pia has worked in Audiology for the last decade, with experience in adult hearing rehabilitation and paediatrics, with special interests in auditory processing disorder and tinnitus.

She has studied extensively, completing her degrees at the University of Western Australia. Pia initially completed studies in Zoology and Neuroscience (2007) and had a successful career as a Sleep Technologist before studying again to complete her Masters in Audiology.

Pia has helped people living with tinnitus since 2016, adding a number of tinnitus-specific training courses to her qualifications, including the jastreboff tinnitus retraining therapy course (2018).

Through her work she is dedicated to finding the best possible outcomes for her clients with this chronic and potentially life-disrupting condition.
