This subject will apply a problem based approach to describe the physiotherapy management of individuals with acute and chronic cardiorespiratory conditions. Students will integrate prior knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology and pathology with theoretical and evidence based knowledge to generate an effective and comprehensive physiotherapy management plan. A variety of teaching methods will be employed to develop students’ skills in the assessment and diagnosis of cardiorespiratory problems. A range of cardiorespiratory physiotherapy interventions will be introduced and students will be trained in the appropriate execution of these techniques and relevant outcome measures to evaluate their efficacy. Consideration will also be given to the rights of individuals and the impact of team management processes in cardiorespiratory physiotherapy practice.
