Event Description

This course encourages education and discussion with a focus on an evidence-based and comprehensive team approach for concussion management. It provides an overview of the latest guidelines of best practices and takes a closer look at how the visual and vestibular systems can be affected post-head trauma.

This course also places an emphasis on clinical course indicators (both computerized and non- computerized) to guide healthcare providers in the evaluation and recovery process following head trauma. More specific guidelines within the graded "step-wise" approach are provided for "return to learn” exertion, visual vestibular functional integration training and dual tasking. There is also an overview of how to assess and treat benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) that can occur post head trauma.

**Course has been approved for 11.5 CEU credits
