ADVANCED PHYSIOTHERAPY PRACTICE

PTY5APP

2020

Credit points: 30

Subject outline

This subject involves three modules: (i) advanced spinal physiotherapy, (ii) professional practice, and (iii) a self-directed project. Advanced spinal physiotherapy expands on the clinical reasoning and manual therapy skills developed earlier in the course, with focus on spinal physiotherapy. The professional practice module aims to prepare you to commence practice as a newly graduated health professional, covering legislation, codes of conduct and ethical practice. In the third module, you will identify a gap in physiotherapy practice and develop a creative solution to this issue. As a self-directed project, you will develop their solution with the ultimate aim of improving physiotherapy practice within the chosen context.
