Brief description Dizziness is highly prevalent among older people and often leads to functional disability and psychological distress. However, it is not well understood and is consequently often unresolved, ill-diagnosed, and inappropriately treated. This research will investigate whether a multidisciplinary assessment and intervention can reduce reported dizziness and improve quality of life in older people, to ultimately develop a validated assessment tool for providing a differential diagnosis of dizziness.
