About this Unit
This unit introduces students to the concept of physiotherapy as a profession, including regulatory, ethical and legal frameworks underpinning practice within the context of the changing health environment. In addition, students will be introduced to fundamental aspects of physiotherapy practice, including gathering, analysing and problem-solving information through a process of clinical reasoning. Students will also develop practical skills in relation to assessment of movement, patient manual handling and transfers, and patient education regarding gait and use of assistive devices.
