Musculoskeletal Physiotherapy III - PHTY5204

This unit of study, along with its companion unit PHTY2059 builds on competencies around professional identity, technical skills, communication and patient centered care that were acquired and demonstrated in the foundation musculoskeletal units. Students will develop competencies in clinical reasoning, problem-solving and critical thinking supported by the use of case studies that focus on assessment and management of commonly occurring musculoskeletal conditions of the cervical spine and upper limbs in a primary care setting. Students will use a framework for management of musculoskeletal conditions that is consistent with widely endorsed clinical practice guidelines and uses a pragmatic evidence-based approach to patient care. In-depth learning modules in this unit include principles of risk stratification, guideline-based management planning, and epidemiology
