Course Overview

This module aims to explore and discuss factors that contribute to deterioration in muscle structure and function, develop a conceptual understanding of a variety of methods that can be used to prevent deterioration in, and/or improve muscle function, evaluate appropriate technology/assistive devices used in the rehabilitation of patients with neuromuscular/neurological conditions and critically evaluate specified commonly used outcome measures within the context of the ICF classification.

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.
