Postgraduate, Continuing professional development, Module

Module Overview

This component will focus on the development of abilities to manage a case-load at the level of a junior grade physiotherapist. Students will have the opportunity to select a setting to undertake a practice placement experience as a 4 week elective, organised by themselves. This will give students the opportunity to critically evaluate the diversity of skills necessary for practising as a registered physiotherapist with a developing awareness of the future potential of physiotherapy provision. 

The opportunity will exist to consolidate skills developed during previous placements and further develop new profession specific knowledge and skills.
