About This Course

Objective of the course: Vertigo is a common, distressing presentation in general practice.

In fact, more than 50% of patients with dizziness who visit the CPs & GPs have vertigo as the underlying cause. Hence better understanding of the condition is of utmost importance. We present to you e-CME on Vertigo from the experts in the field which is aimed at enhancing the knowledge of the Consultant Physicians & general practitioner with regards to this condition.

VERTIGO SMART e-CME is divided into three modules in the form of video recordings of the Vertigo experts. Each module is accompanied by a set of assessment MCQs in order to test and deliver credit points to the attendees post successful completion.

This course series will take you through in depth understanding of pathophysiology of Vertigo, with experts discussing clues on differentiating peripheral and central vertigo based on different parameters.
