Course Description:

Advances in Vestibular Rehabilitation: A Competency Based Renewal Course - August 9 - 12, 2017

This advanced level, evidence-based, three and a half day course was developed in response to requests for an update on treatment and assessment of people with vestibular disorders.  It is open only to Physical and Occupational Therapists who have passed the Vestibular Rehabilitation Competency-Based Course. The course will emphasize assessment and treatment of cervico-genic dizziness (lecture and laboratory sessions); differentiation of central eye movement signs and symptoms from peripheral vestibular eye movement signs and symptoms, as well as treatment considerations for individuals with dizziness secondary to central vestibular disorders, including concussion; treatment of the less common presentations of BPPV (lecture and laboratory sessions); dizziness and Meniere’s versus the migraine complex, SCD and other uncommon vestibular disorders;  pediatric vestibular rehabilitation; and expectations for recovery. 

In addition, ALL PARTICIPANTS ARE ASKED TO BRING WITH THEM ONE CASE STUDY (PREFERABLY DIFFICULT) THAT MAY BE REVIEWED AS PART OF THE COURSE.  Participants should create a short (no more than 5 slides) PowerPoint presentation (if possible) containing patient history, vestibular function test results, and if possible, even videos of eye movements and gait, as well as summary of medical, surgical and rehabilitation treatments. Selected cases will be discussed by the faculty and course participants on the last day of the course.
The course will include written, video and practical examinations of assessment and intervention procedures.

Two certificates are given for the course - one for attendance and one for achievement. It is our intent that the certificate of of achievement signifies that at the time the course was given, the participant demonstrated proper performance of certain skills (based on practical exams) and understood basic information (based on written exams) related to vestibular rehabilitation. The granting of the certificate of achievement in no way certifies that the participant retains those skills and knowledge, or applies them appropriately in the future. Upon completion of the course CEUs will be awarded via a certificate of attendance. Full attendance to the course is required to obtain CEUs  for the course. Partial credit will not be awarded for partial attendance.

Course size will be limited to 60.
