The featured article in the September issue of ASHA Access Audiology will focus on the value of an interprofessional team in diagnosing and managing a patient with dizziness or balance difficulties.
At least 40 percent of the population experience and seek medical help for a balance disorder or dizziness at some point in their lives. In her article, Belinda C. Sinks, clinical and research audiologist in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, indicates that balance disorders can be difficult to diagnose and can significantly decrease a person’s quality of life. Interprofessional teams—which may include audiologists, physicians, occupational therapists and physical therapists—may enhance diagnosis and management of these conditions.
