Neurophysiotherapy : Evidence for Rehabilitation and Practice

This 6 day course is designed for physiotherapists who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of the current evidence base for rehabilitation intervention in neurological populations. 

Physiotherapeutic treatment approaches across a range of acute to chronic and mild to severe presentations will be reviewed in the context of the current evidence base. Included in the module will be a critical review and analysis of approaches to treatment intervention. Clinical reasoning and management will also be explored.

Students will be encouraged to reflect critically on their own practice and scope of practice and will be expected to actively participate in discussions, debate and workshops.

Learning outcomes

  • Demonstrate advanced theoretical clinical reasoning skills in the assessment and management of selected neurological injuries and conditions, in the context of the evolving evidence base and within a solid clinical reasoning framework.
  • Critically justify strategies and techniques for neurorehabilitation treatment in a selection of clinical presentations which may cover acute, sub-acute or chronic time phases, and across a range of conditions. 
  • Evaluate the influence of psychosocial factors and justify appropriate management approaches that could be used both during rehabilitation and return to home/family/work/community roles. 
  • Critically reflect on their scope of practice and their role within the multi-disciplinary team in the management pathways of children and/or adults with selected neurological injuries and conditions.

The course will be delivered via a combination of face to face lectures, workshops and seminars. Teaching will be facilitated by relevant experts in their field. Online activities including video analysis of clinical manifestations of neurological disorders and assessment and quizzes will be incorporated into the module and developed over time to enhance the learning experience. 

Moodle, the UCL virtual learning platform will be used to facilitate communication both between tutors and students, and between the students themselves, and also to provide learning resources and feedback. Lecture capture technology will be used throughout the module for recording of lectures, so that students can refer back to them during revision periods.
