I think my weak area was with central vestibular disorders
To gain a better understanding of central vs peripheral vestibular disorders and appropriate treatment methods
I wanted to expand my knowledge and understanding of vestibular impairments beyond the baseline of BPPV/CRMs, cerebellar dysfunction (or CNS) from stroke, CNS disorders, etc.
I treated a large number of concussion patients with great success. But when word got out - more people started asking if I also treat vertigo etc. I felt if I was going to commit to treating more vestibular patients I needed to be as up-to-date as possible.
Closing the gap for acute level patients.
I have become confident in my differential diagnosis skills which helps me interact more effectively with my patients and other healthcare professionals.
Acute care intervention, diagnosis and treatment - VOR HEP if stable, other ways I can assist these patients in acute care
The ability to establish a good working diagnosis by enhancing evaluation skills. Also improving skills with addressing the cervical component when there is dysfunction.
Being diligent enough to study on my own! Lack of knowledge in vestibular rehab, lack of treatment ideas, lack of assessment tools.
I work with acute care and have had difficulty diagnosing peripheral vs central pathologies. I also did not have a good understanding of the mechanisms and screens for complex BPPV.
Great deal of content from multiple sources - not sure what to believe at times. Needed thorough and authoritative education on clinical applications.
Cervicogenic issues are probably my weak point. Primarily vestibular/neurologic focus of my practice, so always looking to improve my skills for this. Also to further improve understanding of visual dysfunction and treatment for patients unable to get to higher level of vision care.
Differential diagnosis, safety screens (cervical and ligamentous screens), treatment
Simplifying the evaluation/assessment process into a systematic yet thorough one.
Learn more about BPPV and ways to treat and also reach more concussion patients.
I wanted to review what I've learned so far and continue to build my knowledge. I wanted to gain more treatment ideas, especially for difficult patients.
I wanted more advanced training for difficult cases, concussions, updated review of research, hands on training, vestibular networking.
I work with a private outpatient ortho clinic that specializes in chronic pain; my subspecialty focus is in craniosacral therapy, myofascial, visceral mobilization, and women's health. I found a large part of this clinical population had vestibular impairments that were undiagnosed and untreated; specifically vestibular migraines, anxiety, concussion, HAs, and dizziness.
I wanted to learn more about working through the exam, especially with patients with both central and peripheral signs. I also wanted to feel more confident with BPPV exam and eval.
I wanted to improve my vestibular diagnostic toolbox
100% solved all of them and exceeded my expectations.
Definitely challenged my knowledge of central disorders and now feel much more comfortable with these diagnoses.
I feel much more confident in recognizing and treating both vestibular and central disorders.
The CCVR Course allowed for an educational format to cover online material at a self-directed pace that fit my schedule and provided committed weekends to focus and discuss content face to face with a variety of the faculty.
It provided me with not only the foundational information but pushed me to problem solve and offered hands-on treatment options.
Equipped me with the knowledge and tools to assess and treat vestibular patients
Because of my better understanding of vestibular concepts, I am better able to educate my patients and improve patient compliance
Well done- comprehensive study and also gave me confidence. I know more than I think. Comfortable, supportive, and knowledgeable staff that promoted discussion.
Great. I feel more comfortable to talk to ENTs.
Yes, I feel I have been provided with the tools and resources to continue to improve my skills.
Provided me with a VERY comprehensive look at vestibular rehab, allowed me to solidify my assessment and treatment skills, and provided higher-level, in-depth, and evidence-based information to enhance my practice.
Will be able to evaluate and treat vestibular patient population including complex cases
The CCVR Course solved challenges and problems I didn't even know I had. It absolutely change the way I practice. No longer will I allow the black eye patches. I'll start using the hint test in the ER religiously and train my patients to include a lot more peripheral integration - among many other changes.
Extremely thorough! Pulled a great deal of the evidence together in one location and benefit of therapist's experience who do this every day.
The online content was a life saver because I could/can reference it whenever. Bridgett was available for questions and so helpful. The hands-on skills section further enhanced my learning with practical application.
Learned several techniques to improve management of cervicogenic issues :) Also the visual evaluation and intervention instruction was in great depth and increased my understanding of this system.
Excellent content and instructors explained/taught material so that I can listen/watch & hear. Different ways of explaining material. Repetition.
I feel the information was very thorough and research based. I have learned more than I ever thought I would and how much I was missing.
I got a lot more treatment ideas, especially for visual therapy. I also got new ideas for BPPV treatments.
Helped connect gap between treatments and add more of an integrated/holistic approach. I am just so passionate about vestibular and just want to keep learning and meet more who love it and this course helped me accomplish that. Thank you so much!
This course elevated my entire knowledge base on the wide scope of vestibular therapy and how it can be used to assist the vestibular population and beyond. I was able to take my chronic concussion patient from not being able to tolerate crowds to grocery shopping independently, my vestibular migraine patient can now watch her daughter's volleyball games, and a stroke patient can do the 'tree pose' in yoga with her eyes closed. My largest 'win' is that my clinic now understands how important VR is.
I feel more confident with my exam and eval in order to apply it to my clinic's patient population. I also feel more confident in assessing nystagmus for BPPV after all the practice with videos.
I now have more tools to screen all the possible causes of dizziness as well as the ability for exercises to treat related impairments. This course helped me see the bigger picture to treat my patient in all aspects.
The course was very detailed and provided great feedback during the labs.
