About this Unit
This unit builds on the knowledge and skills developed in the first two years of physiotherapy study. It focuses on client assessment and evidence-based management in acute neurological physiotherapy contexts. This will require strong communication skills, ethical and professional behaviour and an appreciation of interprofessional care. Professional competencies addressed in this unit include introductory skills in neurological physiotherapy assessment, interpretation and prioritisation of findings along with the implementation and evaluation of appropriate treatment strategies.
