Description for 2018/19

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.

The module aims to apply the knowledge and understanding to:
Practically apply knowledge of normal anatomy and physiology to the human body.
Practically apply basic movement science principles in the healthy adult.
Develop the student's handling and communication skills.

Intended Learning Outcomes

identify normal anatomy and physiology in a healthy adult model;
: 1,

begin to apply movement science principles to the analysis of normal human movement;: 1,

demonstrate the application of safe and competent therapeutic handling skills appropriate to the level of study;: 1,

demonstrate physiological measurement and its interpretation.: 1,

Study hours

96 tutor led hours which may include lectures, practical classes and workshops, seminars, tutorials and three hours of assessment preparation classes etc.
54 hours of independent study.
