Tomorrow night (Oct 4th), I will be returning to Bastyr University Grand Rounds to lecture on “Vestibular Assessment from a Primary Care Perspective.” This is a lecture I have given before to Bastyr students nearing the completion of their training as naturopathic physicians and it is a topic near and dear to my heart.
Dizziness is one of the most common reasons for seeking medical care. It is critically important that primary care providers are skilled in recognizing the presentation of common vestibular problems. One of the most common complaints for patients with dizziness and vestibular problems is the time it takes to get a good diagnosis and appropriate treatment. By giving this lecture to future primary care providers I am hoping to help them get their patients to the right kind of care sooner.
