SKILL DEVELOPMENT FOR PERSON-CENTRED PHYSIOTHERAPY

PTY4PCP

2014

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this subject students will further develop clinical reasoning and communication skills to promote person-centred physiotherapy. Students will further develop skills in clinical measurement and integrate these into reasoning processes for complex clinical scenarios. A clear purpose of the subject is to bring together concepts explored in corequisite subjects and identify the principles that are shared across the breadth of physiotherapy. Clinical reasoning categories will be explored with emphasis on body structure and function and contextual factors, including ethics and medico-legal frameworks that guide clinician behaviour. Students will also expand on the role and process of communication in clinical practice.
