Format(s):   Live Seminars
Discipline(s):   Physical Therapy / Occupational Therapy
Contact Hours:   14
Registration Fee:   $450

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Discover and correlate relevant pathophysiology of the vestibular and balance systems
2. Recognize and classify important terms such as nystagmus, vestibular ocular reflex, etc.
3. Identify and discover several etiologies that can explain non-vestibular dizziness
4. Compare and contrast the essential subjective and objective components of the differential diagnosis for balance/vestibular dysfunction.
5. Select/demonstrate balance tests including Functional Gait Assessment, Four-square Step Test, Motion Sensitivity Quotient, etc.
6. Selects and demonstrate evidence-based vestibular tests such as VOR, DVA, HIT, for assessing central and peripheral vestibular lesions.
7. Relate findings from the Dix-Hallpike and Roll tests to determine BPPV
8. Design and modify evidence-based interventions such as gaze stabilization, habituation, and general balance/coordination exercises
9. Design and modify evidence-based interventions for routine and complex BPPV cases
10. Identify the key points of comprehensive documentation to support and justify skilled balance and vestibular intervention
11. Explain, summarize, teach, monitor, refine, and eventually develop your own comprehensive vestibular rehab program specific to your practice setting.

Target Audience
A Workshop for Physical Therapists, Physical Therapy Assistants, Occupational Therapists and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants

This new interactive two-day (2-Day) workshop will cover the functional anatomy & physiology as well as the pathology of the vestibular and balance systems across neurologic, orthopedic, and cognitive domains. Emphasis will be placed upon formulating a working differential diagnosis for central and peripheral mediated vertigo. Additionally, equal focus will be placed on understanding how to assess and treat BPPV arising from anterior, horizontal, and posterior canalithiasis and cupulolithiasis. Guided by breakout hands-on labs and case scenarios, you will utilize and examine evidence-based assessment and intervention tools that are designed to effectively manage patients with easy and straight-forward diagnosis to those who have difficult-to-diagnose complex deficits which severely impair function. The instructor will disseminate information from clinical practice guidelines (CPG’s) for both Peripheral Vestibular Dysfunction and Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo that will assist you in your practice. The instructor also welcomes you to feel free to “present” any challenging cases from your own practices in a warm, friendly, non-threatening, non-judgmental, and collegial environment among your fellow colleagues across the nation. Lastly, the material presented in this course ranges from intermediate to advance and is applicable to multiple clinical setting ranging from acute to home to SNF to outpatient.
