Vestibular Rehabilitation Benefit Questionnaire

The VRBQ has been developed and validated to measure changes in dizziness and its consequences over the course of vestibular rehabilitation.

The research was conducted by Dr Anna Morris, under the supervision of Professor Mark Lutman of ISVR and Professor Lucy Yardley of the School of Psychology.
