    Evidence-based Practice for Vestibular Disorders: Eye Movement Analysis and Abnormal Eye Movement (Part 1 of 2)

    Time: 8:00 am - 9:30 am (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Susan L. Whitney, DPT, PhD, NCS, ATC, FAPTA; Susan J. Herdman, PT, PhD, FAPTA; Janene M. Holmberg, PT, DPT, NCS; Anne Mucha, PT, DPT, NCS; Michael C. Schubert, PT, PhD

    CEUs: .15 (3.0 contact hours/CCUs)

    This series will focus on evidence-based identification and physical therapy management of complex vestibular disorders in children and adults. The sessions are designed to provide advanced skills and knowledge to the clinician with experience in the treatment of vestibular disorders through didactic and experiential learning. One of the most difficult things to recognize during the examination of the person with a vestibular disorder is abnormal eye movements. The speakers will demonstrate various eye movements and relate case studies to improve participants’ examination skills.

    Evidence-based Practice for Vestibular Disorders: Concussion

    Time: 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Anne Mucha, PT, DPT, NCS; Susan L. Whitney, DPT, PhD, NCS, ATC, FAPTA

    CEUs: .25 (2.5 contact hours/CCUs)

    This series will focus on evidence-based identification and physical therapy management of complex vestibular disorders in children and adults. The sessions are designed to provide advanced skills and knowledge to the clinician with experience in the treatment of vestibular disorders through didactic and experiential learning. The speakers will explore the latest evidence and ideas for optimal practice in management of concussion.

    Evidence-based Practice for Vestibular Disorders: Case Studies

    Time: 3:45 pm - 5:15 pm (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Susan L. Whitney, DPT, PhD, NCS, ATC, FAPTA; Susan J. Herdman, PT, PhD, FAPTA; Janene M. Holmberg, PT, DPT, NCS; Anne Mucha, PT, DPT, NCS; Michael C. Schubert, PT, PhD

    CEUs: .15 (1.5 contact hours/CCUs)

    This series will focus on evidence-based identification and physical therapy management of complex vestibular disorders in children and adults. The sessions are designed to provide advanced skills and knowledge to the clinician with experience in the treatment of vestibular disorders through didactic and experiential learning. The speakers will use case studies to challenge attendees about how and why they are making clinical decisions about their patients with complex vestibular disorders. Each speaker will present several short cases, query the audience about what decisions they would make, and then provide data for why they made their own clinical decisions.

    Evidence-based Practice for Vestibular Disorders: New Tests and Interventions for Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo

    Time: 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Susan J. Herdman, PT, PhD, FAPTA; Susan L. Whitney, DPT, PhD, NCS, ATC, FAPTA

    CEUs: .25 (2.5 contact hours/CCUs)

    This series will focus on evidence-based identification and physical therapy management of complex vestibular disorders in children and adults. The sessions are designed to provide advanced skills and knowledge to the clinician with experience in the treatment of vestibular disorders through didactic and experiential learning. The speakers will review the newest information related to BPPV, as well as tests, measures, effectiveness of interventions, and guidance for when the new examination and treatment techniques are indicated. Clinicians will be exposed to the newest interventions and the evidence for their use. Short case vignettes will illustrate how to select one intervention over another.

    Evidence-based Practice for Vestibular Disorders: Classification, WHO Vertigo and Dizziness Core Sets, and the Older Adult With Dizziness

    Time: 8:00 am - 9:00 am (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Susan L. Whitney, DPT, PhD, NCS, ATC, FAPTA; Susan J. Herdman, PT, PhD, FAPTA; Janene M. Holmberg, PT, DPT, NCS; Anne Mucha, PT, DPT, NCS; Michael C. Schubert, PT, PhD

    CEUs: .1 (1 contact hours/CCUs)

    This series will focus on evidence-based identification and physical therapy management of complex vestibular disorders in children and adults. The sessions are designed to provide advanced skills and knowledge to the clinician with experience in the treatment of vestibular disorders through didactic and experiential learning. The speakers will examine a new model for classifying their patients based on presenting signs, symptoms, and examination findings. The speakers will discuss the development of the WHO Vertigo and Dizziness Core Sets from the ICF model and update attendees on special considerations of the older adult with dizziness and evidence for recovery.

    Evidence-based Practice for Vestibular Disorders: Migraine Dizziness Interventions and Recovery With Central Vestibular Dysfunction

    Time: 9:00 am - 11:00 am (See Program for Room)

    Speakers: Janene M. Holmberg, PT, DPT, NCS; Michael C. Schubert, PT, PhD; Susan L. Whitney, DPT, PhD, NCS, ATC, FAPTA

    CEUs: .20 (2.0 contact hours/CCUs)

    This series will focus on evidence-based identification and physical therapy management of complex vestibular disorders in children and adults. The sessions are designed to provide advanced skills and knowledge to the clinician with experience in the treatment of vestibular disorders through didactic and experiential learning. The speakers will review evidence for the treatment of individuals with migraine dizziness as well as the new Bárány Society criteria for migraine dizziness and their work with the International Classification of Headache group. Attendees will learn about the evidence for common exercises for persons with balance and vestibular disorder, as well as evidence of changes in the brain with eye/head exercise.
