Vestibular Rehabilitation Program Course
The School of Physiotherapy, North Sydney hosted the recent Vestibular Rehabilitation Program Course, 25 – 30 September 2017. This is an internationally recognised course that is only offered in Australia every 2-3 years. Professors Susan Herdman, Rick Clendaniel and a team of American and Australian clinicians delivered the evidence-based, six-day course designed for physiotherapists, occupational therapists and medical doctors who have experience treating patients/clients with vestibular deficits.
Two courses were delivered over several venues at the North Sydney campus, with 130 participants from across Australia attending the Basic Vestibular and the Advanced Vestibular Rehabilitation courses. Overall, the course was a great success and the School received positive feedback from the organisers on the facilities, resources and support from School of Physiotherapy staff. In particular, staff member Dr Simone Dorsch received high praise for her input in assisting with the coordination and organisation of the course, which took 12 months of planning to come to fruition.
