The Balance Challenge

What are the benefits?

  • Help patients explain their dizziness
  • Raise awareness of Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo (BPPV)
  • Diagnose patients with treatable BPPV
  • Explore how the symptoms effect patients

Research indicates that it often takes multiple appointments before a patient with BPPV receives a diagnosis and treatment. With more awareness of the condition up to 85% of patients with BPPV could be diagnosed in primary care.

This tool is designed to help raise awareness of BPPV among clinicians and patients and to encourage a conversation between them which can lead to an earlier diagnosis.
