Event description

Description

This intense, evidence-based, five-day course is designed for physiotherapists, occupational therapists and MDs who have experience treating patients/clients with vestibular deficits. The course consists of lecture and laboratory sessions with additional self-study sessions. All participants will be expected to demonstrate assessment skills to including: oculomotor examination, with emphasis on the identification of nystagmus and canal involvement, balance, gait, fall risk and functional assessments. Participants will also be expected to demonstrate appropriate treatment procedures for BPPV affecting posterior, anterior and horizontal canals for both cupulolithiasis and canalithiasis, for unilateral and bilateral peripheral vestibular disorders, and for central vestibular disorders including traumatic brain injury and stroke. Emphasis will be on utilizing assessment results to develop an effective treatment plan. The course includes written, video and practical examinations. It is recommended that participants have experience treating people with vestibular deficits and/or have completed a previous vestibular course. This is an intermediate to advanced level course.

Two certificates are given in this course – one for attendance and one for passing all the examinations. To obtain the latter certificate, the participant must pass the practical (competency) examination, and the written and video examinations. This certificate signifies that the participant demonstrated proper performance of clinical assessment and treatment skills and understood information (based on the written and video exams) related to vestibular rehabilitation.

Participants will finish the course feeling challenged and ready to see patients with dizziness related to vestibular disorders with greater confidence. Participants will be prepared to think more critically to assess and treat dizzy patients, better able to critically reason through the best available evidence, and synthesise that with a structured and efficient history and examination process-all underpinning an effective, individualised treatment approach. We expect participants to improve their practice and the outcomes of their patients as well as network with peers and potential mentors
