Integrated Studies



Year Two

This module is designed to introduce students to clinical practice where they will be prompted to observe and reflect on what they have seen, documenting identified aspects of practice which will be further explored in university-based learning later in the year. The module will encourage learner independence, as a key attribute of a healthcare practitioner, through adopting an enquiry-based learning approach, focusing students on developing knowledge and skill in managing clinical presentations in key priority physiotherapy specialities including: Care of older people; Mental Health; Paediatrics; End of life care; Learning disabilities, and Public Health
