Vestibular rehabilitation has evolved as a specialist area of clinical practice in rehabilitation as our understanding and awareness of the debilitating sequelae of dizziness and vestibular impairments increases.This course aims to provide an overview of vestibular anatomy and introduce clinicians to the assessment and treatment of individuals with vestibular dysfunction resulting in activity limitations and participation restrictions.
This course is offered as a professional development opportunity for physiotherapists in occupational health.
In this one-day highly interactive course, participants will gain an understanding of risk management principles and risk control measures, hazardous manual tasks assessment and analysis, and good work design.
