Clinical Practicum A - PHTY2063

Year - 2020

The purpose of this unit is to provide an introduction to the application of foundation physiotherapy skills within a clinical setting (clinical simulation combined with an onsite clinical placement). Students will be required to perform subjective and objective assessments specific to each patient. Analysis of the assessment findings, development and implementation of interventions (including discharge planning and interprofessional involvement) and application of outcome measures will occur in consultation with the Clinical Educator. Assessment, interpretation, intervention and re-assessment skills are graded according to a 'basic' standard of practice (appropriate to this stage of student learning). A major focus of this unit is the development of generic, professional skills such as clinical reasoning, reflection, information gathering, communication and professionalism, which will form the foundation for subsequent clinical placements.

Classes
