Vestibular Rehabilitation: An Advanced Course and Update is geared for clinicians (physical therapists, occupational therapists, physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and audiologists) who have a basic knowledge of vestibular disorders. The program content will be at an advanced level and is designed to provide an update regarding the treatment of persons with balance/vestibular disorders and the underlying science. Some of the topics include central causes of dizziness (e.g. anxiety and migraine related dizziness), BPPV, concussion management, vestibular function testing, alternative therapies, pharmacotherapy, cervical dizziness, back to work and driving decisions, innovative therapies for person with vestibular disorders, clinical and functional neuroimaging, and bedside evaluation of the person with dizziness with a lab component. Each of the speakers is an expert from one of several disciplines including physical therapy, neurology, otology, gerontology, psychology, psychiatry, physical medicine and rehabilitation, bioengineering, and neuroscience. There are scheduled question and answer periods following each session at which participants can ask the entire faculty questions.
Cancellations or reschedules received more than 10 working days before the class will be processed promptly. Any payments received are eligible for full refund upon cancellation. Cancellations received 10 or fewer working days before the class will not be refunded. However, clinicians are eligible to attend the same type of class at a later date at no additional charge. Clinicians who do not attend class and do not provide any advanced notice will be charged in full for all course-related class fees.
