Vestibular Integration Strategies One Day Live Course Combined with an Online DVD Home Study

Why take this Continuing Education Course?

This one day intermediate level course blends homestudy training from a professionally filmed and mastered DVD with online access face to face interactive instruction including hands on lab sessions. The course has been carefully designed to maximize the learning experience by combining the self-paced online/DVD home study material with a focused hands-on training session in the classroom.

This course will provide the practitioner algorithmic problem solving skills needed to evaluate and treat dizziness and imbalance. A major emphasis will be placed on how to develop differential diagnosis skills when performing a comprehensive evaluation for a variety of vestibular diagnoses. Significant time will also be focused on developing an effective adaptable progressive plan of care with successful outcomes. A variety of current patient case studies will be thoroughly evaluated to assist with putting all the information together in a practical manner. Extensive time is provided for the evidence based reasoning behind the utilization of specific evaluation and treatment techniques, in additon to hands on laboratory sessions to master the ability to perform each evaluation and treatment technique.

Integrative hands-on labs are interspersed throughout the day and will allow participants to practice and easily apply evaluation techniques and treatment strategies to their clinical practice with these populations. This course will prepare the clinician to evaluate and treat with minimal equipment.

Supporting written material is provided for the online as well as live training sessions, and a detailed DVD is provided for self-paced offline learning and reference. Specifically, participants will receive a comprehensive manual containing information on the evidence-based practice of vestibular rehabilitaiton and a professionally filmed and mastered DVD with online access.This course is offered to Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapist Assistants, and Physician Assistants.
