A Case-Study Approach to Clinical Assessment of Vestibular Function

This is a 2-day course that starts with a brief overview of triage of dizzy patients, terminology, and a review of the vestibular tests necessary to understand the cases that will be presented. Educational material is delivered in an interactive format. Participants will be presented patient case histories and asked to share ideas and engage in deciding which vestibular test or tests are the most appropriate for the patient. Instruction assumes participants will have a working knowledge of tradition tests such as VNG and basic familiarity with the new tests such as vHIT and VEMP.
