Vestibular Dysfunction & Management:
Clinical Competency Course
(presented by Vestibular Education Australia)
This six-day intensive, evidence-based course targets clinicians who have undergone a Vestibular Rehabilitation Introductory course and are wanting to cement their practice in vestibular rehabilitation. Using a combination of lectures, practicums, simulated patients, live demonstrations and competency assessment, this course will provide the attendee with updated knowledge and clinical skills to improve their application of assessment, treatment and overall management of persons with dizziness and imbalance. Emphasis will be placed on translation of evidence into varied clinical models of delivery and the participants’ clinical skills.

Terms and Conditions
Two certificates are given in this course – one for attendance and one for achievement. It is our intent that the certificate of achievement signifies that, at the time the course was given, the student demonstrated proper performance of certain skills and understood basic information (based on written and practical examinations) related to vestibular rehabilitation. The granting of the achievement certificate in no way guarantees that the student retains those skills and knowledge or applies them appropriately in the future.
All participants must ensure they have current physiotherapy registration and be able to provide a certified copy (or AHPRA number) at the time of registration. Course participants must also hold current professional liability insurance and provide a certified copy at the time of registration. Failure to provide proof of registration and insurance will exclude you from the Course. Participants must also have had prior introductory level vestibular education to qualify for registration (we recommend the equivalent of 10 hours of education via a post-graduate course or as part of a University degree).
Vestibular Education Australia reserves the right to cancel the course and will not be responsible for any charges incurred by the registrant due to cancellation. A full course tuition refund will be issued if Vestibular Education Australia cancels the course.
