Module overview

This module builds on learning outcomes achieved from Human Movement and Function, and develops your ability to apply knowledge of anatomy and physiology into a physiotherapy assessment. You will be taught the principles of a physiotherapy assessment to gather both subjective and objective information, ensuring a holistic assessment process (biological, psychological and social factors). Your learning will be facilitated by cases for simple musculoskeletal, cardiorespiratory and neurological conditions. You will also learn about treatment options, with a focus on advice, activity participation and exercise to manage a range of different conditions.

The module will provide the foundation of a safe and efficient assessment process for clinical practice and will provide the means for you to translate this knowledge into the first clinical placement. As far as possible, service users (patients) will contribute to your learning, through demonstration of assessment and treatment techniques, and/or by discussing their lived experiences of their condition.
