This unit comprises two modules. The neurodegenerative module examines the pathology, impairments, activity limitations and participation restrictions arising from neurodegenerative conditions which require adaptation (such as Parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis and motor neuron disease) and the physiotherapy management of these conditions, including self-management principles to increase physical activity and using technology in rehabilitation. The spinal cord injury module of this unit focuses on the physiotherapy management of spinal cord lesions. All modules incorporate evidencebased practice and integrated patientcentered healthcare. Students learn to promote, assess and train or prescribe appropriate aids to enable activity performance and promote participation.
