The assessment for this module will be split into two components:
This component of assessment will be a 20 minute oral presentation of a case-study to demonstrate critical understanding and clinical application of a specific outcome measure used in neurorehabilitation. The presentation may be carried out in person or via virtual means. The presentation will last 15 minutes and a 5 minute period will be allocated at the end for defended questioning.
You will have the opportunity for formative feedback on a 300 word structured abstract prior to your assessment. This abstract will complement the presentation and will be formatively assessed for critical content and structure.
This component of assessment requires you to demonstrate a critical understanding of current research in a treatment approach used in neurorehabilitation and critically explore the relative merits of such an approach in practice with reference to the principles of motor learning and cognitive function. This assessment will take the form of a 3000 word essay.
You will have an opportunity to receive formative feedback on this component during your on-site study days and via email with the module leader.
This module can contribute towards:
Clinical neuroscience and Biomechanics
Understanding how research informs practice
Specialist clinical skills in neurorehabilitation
Assessment of neurological conditions
On successful completion of this module you will be able to:
Learning and Teaching
The learning and teaching strategy for this module is blended and uses taught face to face sessions and online learning activities.
The practice-based learning objectives will be delivered at Glenside Campus. You will be provided with relevant research articles in preparation for these study days and will be expected to complete critical appraisal of these articles. This critical understanding is necessary to facilitate in-depth group discussion on the relative merits of the different treatment approaches which will be covered in these face to face sessions.
University-based study days will be split into theory and practical sessions. During theory sessions lectures will be delivered by expert speakers to address current/relevant evidence-based practice.
Scheduled learning includes; lectures, seminars, tutorials, project supervision, demonstration, practical classes and workshops.
Independent learning activities will include; guided reading, student-led literature reviews, interactive neuroscience material, on-line discussion and on-line quizzes. Guided reading will direct you to appropriate textbooks, journal articles and other resources which will be available electronically. Independent learning will also include hours engaged with essential reading, case study preparation, assignment preparation and completion etc.
Delivery of these taught sessions will take place in settings such as the simulation suites at Glenside Campus and will be designed to represent the clinical environment.
