There is a need to clarify the underlying pathophysiology and optimize the clinical evaluation and management of mild traumatic brain injury-related dizziness and visual disturbances in service members. Training is needed for military healthcare providers to appropriately diagnose, evaluate, treat, and refer patients who experience these difficulties after vestibular impairment and/or brain injury. The vestibular training will include an introduction to underlying mechanisms and an introduction to basic assessment and treatment of impairments.
