- Learning Outcomes
- Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
- Apply the knowledge and understanding of the basic and applied sciences to select and modify advanced assessment and treatment procedures;
- Describe aetiology, epidemiology, pathogenesis and clinical manifestations of selected musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions;
- Discuss conservative and surgical treatment approaches, including complications, to selected musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiovascular and pulmonary disorders;
- Adapt the clinical examination to more complex disorders of the musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiovascular and pulmonary systems, integrating appropriate physical examination procedures;
- Develop appropriate strategies of physiotherapy management addressing functional requirements including those in the rehabilitation, home, occupational and sporting environments;
- Demonstrate advanced testing and measurement procedures to differentiate between normal and abnormal function;
- Apply clinical reasoning skills to musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiovascular and pulmonary physiotherapy;
- Demonstrate advanced physiotherapy, including therapeutic exercise procedures (including their adaptation and progression) in the management of musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiovascular and pulmonary dysfunction, including application to both New Zealand and global health priorities.
