about conference

Is this Seminar for you?

– This seminar is suited to the new graduate or experienced practitioner, either with little to no experience in neurology and vestibular rehabilitation
– You’re looking at improving your clinical competency in managing patients with dizziness, vertigo and poor balance
– You’re unhappy with poor results using standard musculoskeletal therapies
– You’re looking for an integrated brain-based approach in managing challenging cases
– You learn best when there is a mix of clinically-relevant lecture material, reinforced with hands-on practicals

What you will learn?

Vestibular disorders – learn the neurophysiology of the vestibular system, how to conduct a history, assessment, differential diagnosis from common dizziness and vertigo conditions.

Vestibular Rehabilitation – formulate a tailored and individualised management plan for each patient based on their examination findings, so you can have greater certainty in patient outcomes.

BPPV – master how to assess and treat BPPV (the most common vestibular condition) and its many variations, and get patients better, more often.

Day 1 Agenda

Saturday, Jun 22, 2019



08:30AM - 09:00AM



09:00AM - 09:30AM

We explore the prevalence and impact dizziness conditions have on the community and our patients


Neurophysiology of the Vestibular System

09:30AM - 11:00AM

  • the evolutionary and neurodevelopment aspect of the vestibular system and its importance with children
  • the anatomy and connections of the peripheral vestibular system
  • the anatomy and connections of the central vestibular system

Morning tea break

11:00AM - 11:15PM


Vestibular Conditions

11:15AM - 12:15PM

We’ll cover the most common peripheral and central condition that we’ll present to the clinic. You will be across the main signs and symptoms, so you can quickly identify the condition underlying their symptoms, including red flags for medical referral


Dizziness History Taking

12:15PM - 01:00PM

There are many clues in a patient’s history that will guide you to make the correct next step.

Learn a concise and efficient set of questions to ask a patient so you can narrow down the potential vestibular conditions.


Lunch (buffet lunch served in hotel restaurant)

01:00PM - 02:00PM


The Vestibular Examination - Auditory

02:00PM - 02:30PM

We’ll workshop an auditory screening exam as it relates to vestibular conditions


The Vestibular Examination – Oculomotor Exam

02:30PM - 04:00PM

  • nystagmus (spontaneous and gaze-evoked) – understand what it means and how to detect nystagmus and its clinical significance
  • how to differentiate between peripheral and central vestibular conditions
  • visual pursuit and saccade eye movements

Afternoon tea break

04:00PM - 04:15PM


The Vestibular Examination – The Vestibulo-Ocular Reflex

04:15PM - 06:00PM

We’ll cover and practice an extensive protocol of assessing the VOR, from reflexogenic and behavioural aspects

Day 2 Agenda

Sunday, Jun 23, 2019


The Vestibular Examination – Screen for Stroke

09:00AM - 09:45AM

You will be able to very accurately differentiate an acute peripheral conditions from a cerebro-vascular incident like a stroke or dissection. A 3-part examination will give you the confidence to either manage in office or refer for immediate medical emergency.


The Vestibular Examination – Balance and Gait

09:45AM - 11:00AM

Learn and practice the main balance and gait assessments, including standardised tests


Morning tea break

11:00AM - 11:15AM



11:15AM - 01:00PM

We’ll explore the most common variations of BPPV and how they present in office, how to assess them and manage them accurately. This has been updated with the latest revisions. You will workshop how to perform the main BBPV tests and manoeuvres.


Lunch (buffet lunch served in hotel restaurant)

01:00PM - 02:00PM


Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy 1

02:00PM - 03:45PM

  • You will be able to successfully integrate the information you have acquired from the history and physical examination into a tailored rehabilitation program specific to the patient’s findings.
  • When to apply a vestibular, oculomotor or balance component to a therapy program
  • Learn how to identify and manage a patient’s ‘intolerance’ to therapy

Afternoon tea break

03:45PM - 04:00PM


Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy 2

04:00PM - 05:00PM

Putting all the pieces together for effective and efficient integration into practice


Neuromodulation with Trans Cranial Direct Stimulation (Viviana Mucci)

04:30PM - 05:00PM

A discussion on the exploratory field of tDCS for the management of central vestibular including tinnitus. Research and clinical applications will be highlighted with opportunities for enhanced results for challenging cases
