The unit builds upon the material covered and the skills learned during PHTY1023. It continues the context of physiotherapy professional practice on issues and practices in healthcare delivery affecting physiotherapists. As pain and muscle weakness are among the main complaints of most people seeking physiotherapy management, understanding and providing interventions to address these symptoms will be a focus. These interventions include, but are not limited to, patient education and exercise prescription. Several patient case studies will be introduced, and tools enabling students to find and determine current evidence for potential therapeutic interventions specific for these case studies will be provided and practiced. At the end of the unit, the students will be expected to be able to devise appropriate treatment plans for these simple case studies. The importance of communication, documentation and respect for cultural differences in profession practice is continued throughout this unit.
