FP-9: Vestibular disorders for the non-vestibular audiologist


It can be daunting for the audiologists to address their patient’s dizziness concerns, particularly when they do not practice vestibular audiology. This talk will highlight the most characteristic presenting symptoms and concerns, hearing and vestibular test findings, and recommended management strategies for several of the most common and prevalent vestibular disorders. The attendee will learn to guide the interview and formulate diagnostic hypothesis, choose appropriate testing and/or referrals to confirm or dismiss them and to provide your patients with concrete steps towards managing their vestibular concerns.
