Concussions can directly impair vestibular and oculomotor function. Impairments in the vestibulo-ocular system commonly manifest as symptoms of dizziness and visual instability including blurred vision, diplopia, impaired eye movements, difficulty in reading and poor visual-based concentration. The Vestibular and Oculomotor Screening Assessment is a tool that can be used to evaluate symptoms post-concussion. This course will introduce you to this tool and provide insight into how to assess the various components of the vestibular and oculomotor systems.
This course aims to teach you how to assess the 5 domains of the Vestibular and Oculomotor Screen and how to interpret the scores.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

I strongly recommend the courses provided by Physioplus as it improves your knowledge, skills, and they are easy to follow and enjoyable.
There is a wealth of good, reliable information here. Physiopedia and Physioplus are the FIRST places I access for information that is well presented, accessible and based on good clinical science.
