  • To develop an evidence-based approach to the physiotherapy management of more complex clinical problems
  • Critical understanding of the foundation and clinical sciences that relate to human functioning through the application to complex clinical problems
  • formulating a hypothesis, sound clinical reasoning and evaluation where the evidence is lacking
  • integrating previous learning into present and future learning environments
  • critical appraisal of the evidence in relation to the physiotherapy management of a complex clinical problem
  • interpretive reflection on learning and its impact on changing and developing professional practice

Syllabus

Advanced, applied, clinical, critical thinking. Three subject areas – respiratory care, neurological rehabilitation, and musculoskeletal care. Teaching is via complex cases. Students use the case to discuss and reflect on previous teachings and to prepare evidence-based treatment plans. Each of the three subject areas have 5, 3 - 4hr teaching sessions. Assessment is by viva: 10 min presentation followed by a 15 min viva.

Special Features

This module is a link between the year 2 clinical management modules and the year 3 Complex clinical management modules. It is also a base for bringing together the reflection of patients when on placement with theory and this will contribute to both the formative and summative assessment. To facilitate the reflective practice and the transition towards being an independent practitioner responsible for their own learning, mentors and /or peers from year 3 will be used that can facilitate the discussion of case studies and wherever possible experts in the field from a multi professional background will also be used.
