Music and Hearing Aids Research - Participants Required

Dear Colleagues,

We are conducting research into the music listening behaviour of people (aged 18 and over) with hearing loss and who wear hearing aids for a minimum of one hour a day. As part of this study we have developed an online survey and are keen to recruit as many participants as possible.
To participate you will
·         have a confirmed hearing loss (e.g. mild, moderate, severe or profound),
·         wear hearing aid(s) (but NOT a cochlear implant),
·         be between 18-90 years old

A BSL version of all the information and questions is available in the questionnaire
We will ask you about your
·         experiences of music in everyday life,
·         musical preferences
·         hearing
·         hearing aids

It should take about 30 minutes to complete and you will remain anonymous. If you leave your contact details, you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £75 cash prizes. Winners will be selected at random and notified in January 2017.
All the information we collect about you will be kept confidential and you will not be identifiable in any reports or publications.

Details of the project can be found on our website at http:// www.musicandhearingaids.org
