Neurological Rehabilitation

This Certificate is within the framework of the MSc advanced clinical practice (neurological rehabilitation) which is designed to provide a structured professional development pathway for postgraduate physiotherapists and occupational therapists with a special interest and experience in the field of neurological rehabilitation. This course aims to combine the advancement of clinical skills in neurological rehabilitation with Master's-level cognitive skills, and to prepare students for the demands of changing professional roles within neurological rehabilitation. Key features of the course are inter-professional collaboration, user involvement and flexible study. A variety of teaching methods will be used including lectures, seminars, debates, small group work, tutorials and practical skills-based work. Learning and teaching strategies will facilitate students to relate theory to practice issues critically, and to develop as a self-directed, independent learner. Each module will involve students attending 2 teaching blocks (2 days each) which are separated by a period of self-directed study. Learning resources include work books, group work, the virtual learning environment and facilitation from the module team. External lecturers from specialist areas within the field of rehabilitation will contribute to delivery of the modules. At the beginning of the course students will be assigned a personal tutor who will provide support through tutorial meetings face to face during taught study blocks and via email.
