Bachelor of Physiotherapy IHCAP Program and the Bachelor of Physiotherapy Honours
Students will develop skills to enhance their interactions with patients and will
gain foundation knowledge and skills in the application of selected physiotherapy
assessment and treatment techniques. These include joint examination, electro physical
applications and gait analysis. Issues of safety and the evidence base for the interventions
will be emphasised. Students will have the opportunity to undertake site visits to
develop professional knowledge. Successful completion of this subject will provide
students with foundation skills required for future clinical practice experiences.
