Program Description

Vestibular Assessment and Management is AIB’s most comprehensive program, consisting of a complete look at the dizzy patient’s management both from a diagnostic and rehabilitation approach. Learn the full spectrum of care via evidence-based protocols and strategies designed to provide the clinician with the necessary tools to offer a more efficient and productive means of management for the chronic dizzy patient.

This combined 37-hour course consists of 12 hours of self-paced online content, followed by a three-day, 25- hour, live, hands-on course. 

After completing the online component, participants will have the option to attend the live, three-day hands-on clinical competency course. The live component consists of 2-days of Vestibular Assessment, focusing on the diagnostic test battery, followed by a one-day course focusing on bedside evaluation, Vestibular Rehabilitation protocols, and the evaluation and treatment of BPPV.

Learning Objectives

  • Describe the specifics and respective applications of the VNG, VHIT, VEMP, and Rotary Chair.
  • Recognize the preferred examination administration and protocols of each test
  • Compare the relative practical value of each test within a diagnostic efficiency and predictive value format.
  • List the most effective and evidence-based management strategies based on test findings, including writing an accurate and concise Medical Report.
  • Describe peripheral and central vestibular anatomy and physiology
  • Explain the concept of central compensation and those factors affecting it
  • Name the most common otologic and non-otologic conditions which may cause dizziness, vertigo, and imbalance
  • Demonstrate the most sensitive bedside/clinical evaluation protocols which identify candidates for treatment and proper triage and management
  • Differentiate vestibular test abnormalities that identify patients who are “appropriate” candidates for therapy.
  • Use diagnosis-based strategies for designing and implementing a comprehensive vestibular rehabilitation program.
  • Apply specific therapy protocols within individualized programs for patients.
  • Select and perform the appropriate Canalith Repositioning Maneuvers for all forms of BPPV.
  • Describe the relationship of the cervical spine in the management of the “dizzy” patient.
