Strength of evidence

Epidemiology studies for Glue Ear took place in the 1980s and 90s and the high incidence of Glue Ear in the early years was well documented.  More recent studies in the UK have confirmed these findings and the seasonal variation of Glue Ear is evidenced in research and attendance at hearing assessment clinics.

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) is an independent organisation, which provides national guidelines to promote good health.  The NICE guidelines for Glue Ear are based on research and professional advice.

Further case studies are welcomed to highlight the impact of Glue Ear and the benefits of different  interventions.  Please send these to:
