Based on this study’s collected data and the literature used in this investigation, different measures were taken by the musicians depending on their instrument or the musical genre that the musician in question belongs to. At the end of this paper, a new study is suggested focusing on the sound level as experienced by the audience of a concert. (Less)
Abstract (Swedish)
Syftet med denna studie är att undersöka hur musiker som har drabbats av tinnitus eller ljudöverkänslighet hanterar sitt yrke. Underlaget för studien består av fem stycken intervjuer med aktiva musiker inom klassisk musik, jazz och rock/blues som drabbats av tinnitus och/eller ljudöverkänslighet. Studiens resultat visar på följande åtgärder och är kategoriserade efter dessa: sjukskrivning/längre uppehåll, användning av öronproppar, förberedelser/efterarbete i samband med konsert, anpassning i arbetsmiljö samt förändring av tjänst. Utifrån studiens
insamlade data och den litteratur som ligger till grund för undersökningen har det framkommit att det finns skillnader i vilka åtgärder som vidtas beroende på vilket instrument som trakteras... (More)

Utifrån studiens
insamlade data och den litteratur som ligger till grund för undersökningen har det framkommit att det finns skillnader i vilka åtgärder som vidtas beroende på vilket instrument som trakteras eller vilken genre en musiker tillhör. I slutet av uppsatsen föreslås att fortsatt forskning skulle kunna handla om hur ljudnivån upplevs av konsertpubliken. (Less)
