Course content

The aim of our course is to enable physiotherapy practitioners to develop their knowledge and extend and advance their practice to meet the increasingly complex demands of physiotherapy within the health and social care sector.

Innovation, research and creativity will be fostered to enable you to influence practice and effect change. A key element will be the development of evidenced-based practice and leadership in line with government initiatives to develop clinical leaders who can improve people’s health and wellbeing.

Exercise is an essential component in both the prevention and treatment of many diseases that are common today. Our course will enhance your understanding of the use of exercise to aid rehabilitation and enable physiotherapists to explore in depth the theory and relevance of holistic rehabilitation in the promotion of function.
