Module overview

This module builds on the assessment, treatment and clinical reasoning skills taught in Clinical Assessment and Treatment (MSc). It will give you the opportunity to rehearse these skills, learn new management strategies and apply them to new case studies with varied and more complex conditions. You will further develop your knowledge and understanding of respiratory, cardiac, neurological, and musculoskeletal pathologies. In the special client group component, the principles of assessment and treatment will be applied to conditions involved in specialist areas of practice. These conditions are those that affect client populations across the life-span e.g. paediatrics and elderly care.

You will further develop and refine your critical evaluation of the effectiveness of practice, to enable you to manage more complex cases and develop your clinical reasoning.

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. You will acquire skills to support self-management strategies for patients that would be observed across primary (GP practices), secondary (Hospital) and community-based care. This module will enable you to plan and deliver contemporary high quality healthcare in order to meet the challenging and complex needs of individuals and populations.
