An Introduction to Vestibular Rehabilitation is organized by Great Lakes Seminars (GLS) and will be held from Sep 19 - 20, 2020 at Chicago, Illinois, United States of America.
This class focuses on providing an excellent framework for the clinician to effectively treat vestibular disorders. Like all of our courses, this vestibular physical therapy continuing education course focuses on teaching clinicians to actually treat disorders in this rapidly expanding area. One of the strengths of this course is that it applies to clinicians without any vestibular experience, providing ample tools to treat vestibular disorders, while still maintaining the interest and expanding the capabilities of clinicians more experienced in the field of Vestibular Rehabilitation. BPPV is covered at great length in this course.
At the completion of this seminar, the participant will be able to:
• Describe six key components of the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system.
• Discriminate between ten common pathophysiologic conditions of the vestibular system.
• Complete a thorough interview of a patient and hypothesize three potential diagnoses using five key questions outlined in the manual.
• Hypothesize the differential diagnosis of a mock patient who presents with vertigo versus dizziness.
• Complete a thorough examination of a patient, and compare three subjective complaints to the objective findings.
• Identify eight standardized assessment tools for use with patients with a vestibular disorder.
• Perform three specific tests of vestibular function (VNG, Rotary Chair, and Sensory Organization Testing).
• Correctly demonstrate the bedside oculomotor exam and interpret the results.
• Distinguish between canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis and accurately locate the involved canal.
• Justify the use of a specific treatment theory (habituation, adaptation, and/or substitution), and design a treatment plan specific to that patient, given a patient's diagnosis and findings through an objective exam.
• Describe two potential psychological manifestations that may occur with prolonged episodes of dizziness.
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
