Course Overview

This module aims to critically explore the theories of pathophysiological processes underpinning neurological rehabilitation, explore the biomechanical changes in soft tissues following stroke, evaluate the classification systems for stroke and disease, critically appraise current practice and recent developments in neurological rehabilitation and stroke care and the implications these have for patient management, critically appraise current evidence in relation to neurological rehabilitation and critically evaluate national clinical and management guidelines that impact on neurological rehabilitation.

Please note: In your programme you may sometimes be expected to role play and engage in simulated clinical scenarios with other students, such as the practice and observation of practical skills in physical contact with other students. For some specific practices, this may necessitate modification of dress - e.g., to shorts and t-shirt. These activities will be conducted in a professional, safe, respectful and culturally sensitive way, under the supervision of academic staff, according to a defined protocol. This does not apply to Clinical Pharmacy practice modules as all of these modules are distance learning.
