To help healthcare professionals address the rising prevalence of dizziness, vertigo, balance problems, and Post-Concussion Syndrome, Education Resources Inc. is now offering an Advanced Vestibular Rehabilitation Series online.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 02, 2015
The series is recommended for physical therapists, occupational therapists, physical therapist assistants, occupational therapist assistants, nurses, physician assistants, neurologists, otolaryngologists, and emergency room professionals who have had experience with or have previously taken a two day introductory course in vestibular rehabilitation. Course participants can access the series for an entire year to hone their differential diagnosis and treatment skills at their convenience. Participants will receive downloadable handouts and may earn eleven continuing education hours upon completing the series.
Course topics include Advanced BPPV, Cervicogenic Dizziness, and challenging vestibular disorders including Post-Concussion Syndrome. The Advanced BPPV session focuses on differential diagnosis, advanced assessment and techniques for treatment of patients with vertigo from BPPV. The Cervicogenic Dizziness session focuses on the assessment and treatment of cervicogenic dizziness, and how to distinguish it from central vestibular deficits. The third session focuses on the assessment and treatment of patients with vertigo and dysequilibrium from unusual vestibular causes. Course participants will distinguish among causes of dizziness such as Concussion, Chronic Subjective Dizziness (Persistent Postural Perceptual Dizziness), Anxiety, Superior Canal Dehiscence, Fistula, Migraine, and Meniere's disease. Through case studies, demonstrations, extensive directed lab practice, and lecture, participants will advance their skills in vestibular rehabilitation.
"Dr. Clendaniel is an exceptional teacher. From the moment his class starts he makes you feel comfortable and ready to learn. Lab sessions are plenty and well organized. He incorporates hands on with lecture to provide the best learning experience. I would highly recommend taking his class to better enrich your clinician skills in vestibular rehabilitation." – Kip Chesmore, Physical Therapist
