Integrating Current Evidence into Vestibular Rehabilitation Educational Programs

The Integrating Current Evidence into Vestibular Rehabilitation Educational Programs webinar led by Dr. Patrick Sparto, an Associate Professor in the Departments of Physical Therapy, Otolaryngology and Bioengineering at the University of Pittsburgh, provides didactic materials intended to facilitate integration of current research evidence related to measurement and interventions into physical therapy educational programs. Educators in doctorate-level physical therapy programs who coordinate or teach those portions dedicated to neurologic physical therapy, as well as residency directors of neurologic physical therapy are encouraged to watch this presentation and discussion.

Course Objectives:

1) Attendees will be able to delineate the available evidence underlying specific vestibular rehabilitation theories.

2) Attendees will identify the rationale and benefits of integrating systematic outcome assessments into clinical practice, and the utility of these measures to enhance prognosis and functional outcomes.

3) Attendees will articulate the evidence for specific vestibular rehabilitation interventions, with an emphasis on clinical practice guidelines for specific patient subpopulations.

The proposed course will provide didactic materials intended to facilitate integration of current research evidence related to measurement and interventions into physical therapy educational programs. I will provide an updated review of current evidence related to vestibular rehabilitation. The course will target an audience of educators in doctorate-level physical therapy program who coordinate or teach those portions dedicated to neurologic physical therapy, as well as residency directors of neurologic physical therapy. Following completion of the course, continued dialogue will be encouraged, with the potential for specific development opportunities through knowledge translation workshops to enhance physical therapy educational program in an effort to improve clinical practice.
