The Role of Audiology in Concussion Management
This pre-recorded webinar focuses on the role of the audiologist in the treatment and management of the dizzy patient.
In this webinar, we will review the role of the audiologist in balance testing, what diagnostic tests they offer, when and why to consider the testing and how diagnostic tests can help in the treatment and management of the dizzy patient.
We will look at the similarities and differences between the vestibular patient and the concussed patient and how the approach to testing may differ.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:
- Identify at least four (4) different vestibular tests performed by the audiologist and when those tests should be ordered
- Identify at least three (3) types of nystagmus and what makes them unique
- Describe how to use vestibular testing in the treatment and management of their patients
