About this Event

We are proud to announce the only Melbourne based BPPV (Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo) course from Australia's leading vestibular educators in 2020, Natalie Rando (Assistant Professor Bond University) and Leia Barnes, Advanced Physiotherapist (Vestibular/ENT) from 'Vestibular Courses'.

This 1.5 day intensive course course aims to increase confidence in all aspects of BPPV management, including identification of BPPV mimics and understanding the impact of co-existing vestibular conditions. With a strong case-based focus and expanded practical content, the course will equip delegates with the skills and knowledge to treat BPPV in its simplest form and when it becomes more complex.

Course outline:
