Managing Complex Cases Module integrates and builds on the learning from previous modules within the context of managing and treating complex clinical cases across the three main specialities of Musculoskeletal (MSK), neurological (Neuro) and respiratory (Resp) care. The emphasis is on refining your critique and synthesis of the underpinning evidence base for management and treatment, and using this evidence to further support and justify your physiotherapy role as a member of a larger multi-disciplinary team caring for patients with complex, and or long term MSk, Neuro or Resp conditions. The clinical cases used in this module develop your ability to look at the complexity of presentation and integrate issues from multiple viewpoints. As far as possible, service users (patients) will contribute to your learning by discussing their lived experiences of their condition and self-management approaches. You will acquire skills to support self-management strategies for patients that could be observed across primary (GP practices), secondary (Hospital) and community-based care. This module will equip you with the knowledge and skills in order to justify and deliver contemporary high quality healthcare and meet the challenging and complex needs of individuals and populations.
There are two components to the teaching for this module. You will attend all taught components of Managing Complex Cases (BSc) with the third year undergraduate students. To support the mastery level of this module you will also work through several M-level case studies (with associated enquiry seminars) and discuss/share your learning during plenary sessions with your MSc cohort.
