A one-day practical workshop exploring the spectrum of conditions associated with dizziness, how to assess them and treatment options. This introductory course is aimed at manual and physical therapists who would like to feel more confident with diagnosing and managing this commonly seen condition in clinic.

•  Descriptors of dizziness: how these can indicate the type of dizziness and guide the assessment process.
• The questioning process: guidance to help gain the necessary information and steer the objective assessment.
• Information on which tests/outcome measures to use, including practical demonstrations and practice.
• Interpreting the assessment:
   - Is the dizziness of central or peripheral origin?
   - Is it due to benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV), vestibular migraine, Meniere’s, and more..
• Which treatment approach to use and how to apply them.

Maggie Stacey has been a physiotherapist for over 19 years within the NHS, working within the field of neurorehabilitation and specialising within the vestibular rehabilitation area. This involves the treatment of dizziness and balance difficulties as well as concussion. Maggie has also worked at The Wellington Hospital Balance Clinic and for the past four years, has focused her work at the Institute for Sport Exercise and Health. She is the lead specialist vestibular physiotherapist within the concussion clinic at the ISEH, working alongside Dr Richard Sylvester and other members of the MDT, in the management of complex concussion. They see a range of sports people from the elite to club level as well as non-sports people who have had accident-related concussions. Maggie has completed 2 MOOC's in concussion management. She is aware of the need to support and advise both physiotherapists and GPs in the initial assessment and management of concussion. The awareness of this area of need, has arisen from her work at the ISEH and with physiotherapists from Saracens RFC, Scarlets RFC, Leeds Rhinos RLFC, Leicester Tigers RLFC, London Broncos RLFC, Harlequins RFC, Tottenham Hotspurs FC club Arsenal FC, Chelsea ladies football club and GB hockey, among others.
