Using an inquiry-based approach to learning, the subject introduces and develops fundamental clinical skills required to manage common musculoskeletal conditions that present across the lifespan. Students learn to select and deliver research-informed treatments used in physiotherapy practice such as education, exercise-based rehabilitation, taping and manual therapy. Clinical reasoning is developed to inform collaborative decisions regarding treatment selection, which consider factors such as the pathophysiology of a condition, patient preferences and current evidence. Authentic case-based scenarios are used to facilitate the development of clinical reasoning and implementation of research evidence using a practice-orientated approach.
