Who are the courses for?
This is an intense, evidence-based competency course designed for physiotherapists and doctors with experience treating patients with vestibular disorders. There are lectures and hands-on laboratory sessions with additional self-study sessions. All participants will be expected to demonstrate assessment skills to the faculty including oculomotor examination, with emphasis on the identification of nystagmus and canal involvement, balance, gait, fall risk and functional assessments. Participants will also be expected to demonstrate appropriate treatment procedures for BPPV affecting posterior, anterior and horizontal canals for both cupulolithiasis and canalithiasis, for unilateral and bilateral peripheral vestibular disorders, and for central vestibular disorders, including traumatic brain injury and stroke. The course will include written, video and practical skills examinations. It is recommended that participants have experience treating people with vestibular disorders and/or have completed a previous vestibular course before undertaking the Vestibular Rehabilitation Competency Course. You must have previously completed and passed the Vestibular Rehabilitation Competency Course exams to do the Advances in Vestibular Rehabilitation Course.
