ADVANCED PHYSIOTHERAPY PRACTICE

PTY5APP

2014

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

In this subject students will undertake three modules: (i) advanced spinal physiotherapy, (ii) professional practice, and (iii) a self-directed project. The first two modules are taught in a five-week block and students will be encouraged to commence work on the third module, their self-directed project, from the beginning of the teaching period via information delivered on LMS. Advanced spinal physiotherapy aims to expand on the clinical reasoning and manual therapy skills developed earlier in the course, with particular focus on spinal physiotherapy. The professional practice module aims to prepare students to commence practice as a newly graduated health professional, covering legislation, codes of conduct and ethical practice. In the third module, students will identify and undertake a self-directed project with the ultimate aim of improving physiotherapy practice within the chosen context.
