This subject will build on a student's knowledge of normal movement, biomechanics, neuroscience, exercise physiology and the principles of motor control, in order to analyse neurological pathology in the adult population. Students will extend their practical skills in neurological and musculoskelatal assessment, relevant to clients with neurological disorders. This subject will provide students with the opportunity to apply their skills in problem solving to undertake holistic assessment of, and develop management plans for, adults with movement disorders that arise from changes in the neurological and related musculoskeletal systems. Students will be expected to demonstrate ethical decision making to inform safe, effective and evidence based physiotherapy practice. Through this subject, students will have the opportunity to demonstrate skills in producing well-argued and carefully constructed accounts of complex thinking relevant to the evaluation of neurological physiotherapy scenarios.
