Vestibular Rehabilitation for the Emergency and Acute Care Provider

Description

Join us for this evidence-based webinar that will train practitioners in the practical rehabilitative management of vestibular disorders within the emergency department and acute care setting. Prompt identification and rehabilitative treatment of peripheral vestibular disorders (including BPPV) enhances
patient outcomes and care efficiency. The webinar will include a review of relevant peripheral and central vestibular system anatomy and physiology, discussion of pathologies that present with acute dizziness, and bedside vestibular examination and treatment skills. Indications for further medical management and red flags will be emphasized, as well as how to manage barriers to effective care.

The material will be presented using lecture, video case review, and demonstration of examination and treatment techniques. The content is intended to enhance the practitioner’s ability to identify appropriate candidates for and properly administer vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT).

This webinar is primarily intended for occupational or physical therapists practicing vestibular rehabilitation in the emergency department or acute care setting. The content is also applicable to inpatient rehabilitation and quick-access outpatient settings.
