Embedded in the described approach is the need to identify the primary triggers of ongoing symptoms and recognize the need for referrals to maximize and expedite recovery.
This course is designed to expand knowledge of complex vestibular pathologies, improve clinical reasoning in differential diagnosis and present innovative intervention strategies.
