Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Identify and differentiate between anterior, posterior and horizontal canal variants of benign paroxysmal positioning vertigo.
2. Perform the canalith repositioning maneuver, the procedure described by Kim and colleagues, and the procedure described by Yacovino and colleagues for anterior semicircular canal BPPV.
