AUD 832 - Advanced Vestibular Evaluation and Rehabilitation

8 weeks/2 credit hours

This module is designed to provide students with a detailed understanding of specialized vestibular diagnostic tools. Topics will include rotational chair testing, computerized dynamic posturography (CDP), vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMP), video head impulse testing (VHIT) and subjective visual vertical (SVV) testing.  Test results will be correlated with ENG/VNG and common errors in interpretation. The philosophical bases for vestibular treatment will be addressed, providing specific symptom-based strategies for treating identifiable vestibular dysfunction. Students will be instructed on effective administration of vestibular rehabilitation therapy (VRT) protocols and accurate evaluation of treatment efficacy. Content delivery utilizes a practical approach to allow audiologists to develop knowledge and skills for provision of vestibular treatment within their scope of practice.
