The online component of the course is split into four modules:
- neurological (including normal development)
- musculoskeletal (with reference to normal development)
- complex presentation (multimorbidity)
For each module, two cases are worked through with opportunities to update theory, principles of assessment, decision making/prioritising, treatment and discharge planning.
There are a range of acute, subacute and community presentations - all include video clips, pdf references/key readings. Content can be worked through at a time to suit the participant, with feedback from remote tutors available to assist.
The face to face day (9-4pm) then allows additional skill development in use of equipment (eg wheelchair/orthoses prescription, respiratory equipment) as well as patient demonstrations and/or interactive tutorials.
At the completion of this course it is expected the participant will be able to:
- Apply knowledge of normal development across the spectrum of childhood, within the context of normal variations.
- Identify paediatric conditions which are appropriate for physiotherapy intervention.
- Recognise the scope of a comprehensive paediatric physiotherapy assessment.
- Demonstrate understanding of the elements of a comprehensive paediatric physiotherapy assessment for children presenting with cardiothoracic, musculoskeletal or neurological conditions.
- Identify appropriate assessment tools for specific paediatric conditions.
- Conduct prioritised systematic assessments for different paediatric conditions across the spectrum of childhood and adolescence.
- Determine the child’s main problems based on the assessment findings.
- Identify and communicate the important findings of their paediatric physiotherapy assessments that warrant further assessment and / or intervention and / or referral to other practitioners, especially ‘red flags’.
- Set SMART goals for the child in conjunction with their family.
- Identify and apply appropriate evidenced based or best practise interventions to specific paediatric conditions.
- Demonstrate sensitive and appropriate communication at all times when working with children, their parents / grandparents / carers.
- Demonstrate appropriate and professional communication with other health care professionals, both internal and external to their own health care setting.
- Identify limits to their own practice and recognise when to request assistance from senior physiotherapy or relevant clinician within or external to their own workplace.
- Demonstrate competence and confidence to work autonomously as the physiotherapist for paediatric inpatients, for example on weekend shifts, or community/ambulatory clients whilst always identifying limits to their own practice and calling for assistance when appropriate.
