Course Description

A RECOMMENDED SEMINAR FOR PHYSICAL AND OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS PREPARING FOR THE COMPETENCY-BASED VESTIBULAR REHABILITATION COURSE.

It is estimated that 35% of adults, 40 years of age or older in the United States have experienced some form of vestibular dysfunction, while 80% of people 65 years and older have experienced benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), the most common vestibular disorder. In order to treat this specialized population, clinicians need to be aware of the best available evidence including assessment tools and treatment techniques. This course taught by leading experts in the field, will focus on both the evidence based knowledge needed to care for the patient with dizziness as well as the practical skills to treat it.

Day 1 of this course will provide an overview of the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system, discuss common central and peripheral disorders and the integration between the visual and vestibular systems. It will also focus on evidence based examination and rehabilitation of the patient with dizziness, as well as medical and surgical management. Day 2 of this course is a hands on workshop and will focus on evaluation and treatment techniques including: gaze stability testing, BPPV testing and treatment, oculomotor screening, balance testing and exercise prescription.

Target Audience

This activity is targeted to physical therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists, certified occupational therapist assistants, and physicians (no CME’s awarded).
