This unit of study comprises four integrated modules consisting of the delivery of preventative and rehabilitative physiotherapy services in selected populations and complex patient-centred healthcare in society. Specifically, the delivery of physiotherapy services will be addressed in: sport and recreation; occupational health; and community health.. In physiotherapy in sport and recreation, students will assess sports-related injury and design programs to prevent and manage complex injuries sustained during sport and recreational activities. The occupational health module will apply a risk management approach to the role of physiotherapy in work injury prevention and occupational rehabilitation. The community health module will address the contribution of physiotherapy to the management of particular population groups who receive health care in community settings; e.g. indigenous populations and rural/remote populations. The fourth module will comprise hand therapy.
