Join the APTA Colorado CARe SIG for a virtual course, Vestibular Therapy: Implications for Acute Care. This course will be approximately 1.5 hours with time for Q&A and demonstration built in.

The course will emphasize screens and treatments within the scope of a physical therapist. Topics will include screening for central vs peripheral types of dizziness, typical and atypical BPPV, testing for a vestibular hypofunction, a review of the CPG for unilateral and bilateral vestibular hypofunction(s), and discuss types of central dizziness with treatment recommendations.
