FYS045 Physiotherapy and shoulder rehabilitation

7,5 credits, half time, Spring 2019

To apply visit www.antagning.se

The purpose of the course is to revise and extend the students’ understanding of the functional anatomy and kinesiology of the shoulder region as it applies to the assessment and treatment of shoulder dysfunction. This knowledge will then be used to critically evaluate the evidence for existing assessment methods and physiotherapy treatment methods for shoulder dysfunction as well as to explore alternative, evidenced-based assessment and treatment options. The teaching will mainly be problem oriented including analyses of the physiotherapy treatment process with a patient. The learning activities will consist of lectures, seminars, group discussions, work-shops and self-conducted studies. The course will be assessed by oral and written assignments and an individual examination.
This course may be incorporated in the Masters exam in physiotherapy.

To be eligible for the course a physiotherapy bachelor degree of 180 higher education credits or the equivalent is required.
