Susceptibility to Online Tinnitus-Related Misinformation in Individuals With and Without Tinnitus (WEB19845)

Presenter(s): Colleen O'Brien; Aniruddha K. Deshpande, PhD
Course Description

The quality of online medical information can conflict with evidence-based research. Tinnitus is a target for misinformation and bogus treatments due to its prevalence and lack of objective treatments.
