Description for 2018/19

This module forms part of the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy and BSc (Hons) Rehabilitation Science programmes at Keele University which are innovative, integrated programmes that prepare the graduate for further study or employment in health and social care settings. The module introduces the normal anatomy and physiology of the human body and provides a basic introduction to movement science.

The programmes reflect the shifting emphasis away from increasing the quantity of care towards enhancing the quality of care, moving away from a medical disease model towards a health model based on personal responsibility and prevention of disease.

Graduates of the three year BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy programme are eligible to apply for registration with the Health and Care Professions Council and membership of the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy.

To introduce the normal anatomy and physiology of the human body, focusing on the musculoskeletal, neuromuscular, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
To provide a basic introduction to movement science in the healthy adult.
To introduce terminology associated with movement science.
