8th Annual Training Workshop for Healthcare Professionals on Vestibular and Balance Disorders in the Pediatric Population
Dizziness and imbalance are common medical complaints in children, and approximately one-in-three children with these symptoms will be diagnosed with a vestibular disorder. Vestibular dysfunction is particularly common in children with congenital hearing loss and in adolescents with sports-related concussions. Yet, training programs for pediatric physicians, ancillary health care practitioners, audiologists, physical therapists and occupational therapists generally include little-to-no education on the evaluation and management of pediatric vestibular disorders.
This workshop will use both lectures and hands-on workshops to teach pediatric providers to better understand the physiology and differential diagnosis of pediatric vestibular dysfunction, and to evaluate and treat pediatric vestibular disorders in an effective manner. This course will also include workshops on techniques in vestibular testing and vestibular rehabilitation.
This workshop alternates cities every year.
This year the workshop will be held at The Hospital for Sick Children from November 29-30, 2017.
Here is the detailed Workshop Agenda.
