Introduction

Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) is the most common cause of vertigo in patients with peripheral vestibular disorders. While the overall incidence of BPPV in the general population is only around 2.5 percent, 50 percent of older adults are affected by this condition. However, a significant number of patients can experience a rapid reduction in symptoms with appropriate treatment. This course will take you through how to identify the location of a patient’s BPPV and how to optimally manage this client group.

Aims

This course aims to introduce key assessment techniques for BPPV and to discuss appropriate management strategies based on a patient's unique presentation.

Outline

This course is made up of videos, reading, discussions and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Videos
  2. Reading activity
  3. Quiz

Target audience

This course is aimed at Physiotherapy and Physical Therapy clinicians, students and assistants. Other interested professionals such as athletic trainers, occupational therapists, nurses or medical doctors interested in this subject are also invited to participate.
