Teaching, structure and assessment


This course runs through 6 months and is delivered through a combination of Online,face-to-face lectures, workshops and seminars. There’ll also be online learning tests which you’ll need to complete.


Learning Outcomes:


You'll learn about physiotherapeutic treatment approaches for a range of neurological injuries and conditions, from acute to chronic and mild to severe, in the context of the current evidence base.


The course involves critical review and analysis of approaches to treatment intervention with clinical reasoning and management.


You'll be encouraged to reflect critically on your own practice and scope of practice and actively participate in discussions, debate and workshops.


By the end of this course you should be able to:


demonstrate advanced theoretical clinical reasoning skills and critical understanding of the evolving evidence base to justify the assessment and management of selected neurological presentations

critically justify strategies and techniques for neuro-physiotherapy treatment in a selection of clinical presentations and reflect on your scope of practice.
