Vestibular Rehabilitation adopts an exercise-based approach in the management of dizziness and balancedisorders associated with vestibular pathology. This course aimsto equip physiotherapists with the knowledgeand skills to evaluate and treat common vestibular disorders, such as benign paroxysmal positional vertigo(BPPV), unilateral and bilateral vestibular loss resulting from peripheral vestibular dysfunctions, traumatic braininjury and stroke.This Basic Vestibular Rehabilitation Workshop has been conductedsince 2001, including 2 sessions in KualaLumpur, Malaysia and 3 runs in Hong Kong. The same faculty has also conducted the first AdvancedVestibular Rehabilitation Workshop in Singapore in March 2011.
Physiotherapists specializing in the areas of vestibular rehabilitation, neurology, geriatric, medical &musculoskeletal will benefit from the workshop.
There will be lectures and practical sessions aimed at promotingthe integration and application of evaluationand treatment techniques for patients with complex vestibular disorders. The course will also include interactivevideo laboratory sessions and case studies, which aim to challenge physiotherapists toward a problem-solvingapproach in management of patients with vestibular dysfunction. The clinical competency and written exams atthe end of the workshop are designed to assess physiotherapists’skill sets in vestibular rehabilitation and testtheir knowledge based of this specialized field of physiotherapy.
* Certificate of achievement will be conferred upon completion of course& passing of the competency exams.
Upon completion of this workshop, participants will be able to :1.Gain an understanding of the anatomy and physiology of the vestibular system.2.Recognize common clinical signs and symptoms and relate them to functional implications.3.Distinguish between peripheral and central causes of dizziness and imbalance.4.Perform vestibular assessment, integrate clinical findings and patients’symptoms to formulate appropriatetreatment plans.5.Perform appropriate treatment techniques for benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, unilateral and bilateralvestibular loss, and central vestibular disorders.6.Evaluate the effects of vestibular rehabilitation.
