This course will provide attendees with an overview of the affect of diabetes on the three primary sensory modalities of balance; vision-vestibular and somatosensory. A review of the literature will be presented to document the evidence-based research, which clearly demonstrates; the significant impact of the disease on individuals, corresponding vestibular-balance test results as well as intervention strategies. Participants will be provided with clinical pathways, which may be incorporated into their practice to facilitate identification and intervention for individuals with diabetes, who are experiencing debilitating conditions and increased fall risk which can have life-altering implications.

At the conclusion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:

List the changes that occur in each of the sensory modalities.

Name those vestibular-balance tests, which have greatest sensitivity to diabetic-related changes.

Identify best practices to implement identification and intervention protocols within a diabetic fall risk management program.
