Clinical Workshop

Workshop Schedule & Agenda

Description of the course

To have the novice technologist and physician learn about the clinical problems of dizziness, vestibular dysfunction and brain disorders culminating in falls. The underlying anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology will be stressed. Dynamic and static testing of the vestibular systems and the central nervous systems will also be covered. Small group discussions will be held with hands-on training with the equipment. The technologists will also have separate, specialized training sessions. Some technician training sessions will be with their physicians working in a group so they can operate as a team as they will in their home venue. The course is programmed to instill competence in the team to not only do the test (after the patient is first examined and evaluated by the physician), but to assess in conclusion, new and proper directions for therapy. Several therapies will be taught including the Epley maneuver and other balance training technologies that have yielded positive outcomes.

Prior major accomplishments by Preferred Provider Care included advising a national MRI company in the utilization and prior planning for future direction in health care change. PPC was also instrumental in utilization of infrared technologies in the diagnosis for reflex sympathetic dystrophy. PPC is currently involved with a major corporation working toward the development of breast cancer detection via non-invasive, high resolution, digital subtraction infrared imaging. Expert training of technologists and remote reading of nerve conduction studies and cerebral recordings of evoked potentials was done in rural Kentucky for aid in establishing a neurological diagnosis for Intergroup Medical Services of Apopka, FL. We also performed similar test data reading from Adelaide, Australia. A new successful diabetic neuropathy therapy with infrared light waves was pioneered by this organization. Several scientific papers were published, along with a published textbook on infrared therapy. PPC is currently involved in fall prevention via balance diagnosis and therapy. Balance Medicine seminars have been presented nationally by this organization. Other scientific training seminars have been previously provided in the fields of EEG, evoked potentials, infrared imaging and infrared therapy.
