This module forms part of the BSc (Hons) Physiotherapy programme and is a Programme Elective for the BSc (Hons) Rehabilitation Science at Keele University. Both are innovative, integrated programmes that prepare the graduate for further study or employment in a health and social care setting. The module introduces students to the application of anatomy, physiology and basic 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.
