Learning Outcomes

Graduates of REHB704 Neurorehabilitation will demonstrate:

  1. KNOWLEDGE

The student gives coherent written and verbal explanation of the application of rehabilitation for people with a range of neurological health conditions. The student also clearly explains the associated impairments, activity limitations, and participation restrictions, and how contextual factors (environmental, personal) influence rehabilitation for the person living with a range of neurological health conditions. The student is also able to understand and consider ways of addressing disparities in rehabilitation access and outcomes for a range of neurological health conditions within New Zealand.

  1. CRITICAL THINKING

The student organises, prioritises, critically analyses, and interprets evidence and theory about rehabilitation for neurological health conditions for application in practice-based settings.

  1. COMMUNICATION

The student communicates information and critical thinking effectively, both orally and in writing, to other students and teaching staff.

  1. AN INTERDISCIPLINARY PERSPECTIVE

The student actively engages in learning with, from, and about other rehabilitation professions in ways that support collaborative learning and teamwork in neurological rehabilitation.

  1. LIFELONG LEARNING

The student’s participation in independent learning activities demonstrates ongoing commitment to research-informed rehabilitation best practice for neurological health conditions through acquisition and utilisation of knowledge from a range of sources.
