Specialist Neurological Rehabilitation 1: Cognitive Neuropsychological Basis of Practice

The module develops the themes of Vision and Action; Posture and Balance. You will develop your critical analysis of these components of the prerequisite module into the clinical workplace. Student led discussion groups will critically evaluate the 'theory-practice gap' in the assessment and management of neurological patients during rehabilitation. This evaluation will naturally develop as the module explores the issues raised in practice.
