About this Unit
In this unit, students will further develop their clinical reasoning with respect to clients with complex presentations in areas such as aged care, women’s health, return to work, private practice and culturally and linguistically diverse individuals. Complex information will be synthesized such as the theory, research and skills across the spectrum of physiotherapy care , and theories related to professionalism, ethics, safety and communication. This unit also contains the discussion of a range of recent professional developments in physiotherapy, which are relevant to entry level practitioners. These include registration as a physiotherapist, continuing education, workload control strategies, duty of care responsibilities and quality improvement processes (including critical reflection), employment strategies and career pathways.
