Richard Gans, PhD
Sara Jagger, AuD, PhD

Duration: 60 minutes

Instructional Level: Intermediate

Program Focus: Knowledge 

Description:

Vestibular evaluation and management have changed dramatically along with better understanding of conditions that cause dizziness and imbalance and new diagnostic tests. Most audiologists had little vestibular coursework and rotations during their university training, but audiologists are critical components of the multi-disciplinary assessment of dizziness and imbalance. The focus of this session is to understand vestibular conditions, diagnostics, and treatment through a case study approach. Topics covered include updates on clinical practice guidelines for vestibular and non-vestibular conditions, diagnostic test options, and creating and maintaining good relationships with referring providers.


Learning Outcomes:
  

1. Identify symptoms related to vestibular and non-vestibular causes of dizziness.
2. Differentiate the principles of available vestibular tests.
3. Describe effective vestibular report writing and communication with referring providers.
