The ability to comprehensively assess and manage balance, mobility and gait is an essential aspect of clinical practice for physiotherapists working with clients with a range of neurological disorders. PHTY603 offers post graduate physiotherapy students the opportunity to update and enhance theoretical knowledge and clinical skills to facilitate development of advanced evidence based strategies and interventions for clients that present with symptoms adversely affecting their mobility, co-ordination, sensation, balance or activity participation associated with a range of neurological pathologies and acquired neurological injuries. This unit aims to encourage students to further develop and apply to their practice, enhanced knowledge and skills associated with critical analysis of balance, mobility and gait, collaborative setting of person-centred goals; as well as development and implementation of evidence based strategies with the purpose of optimising capacity for participation.
