Event Description

The CPD Module “Stroke Rehabilitation” provides students from a range of different professional backgrounds with comprehensive stroke rehabilitation principles and practice. It is a 10 credit module which can be taken as a stand-alone CPD module or can be used as credit towards a Postgraduate Cert or Masters.  

A ten-credit module equates to 200-250 hours of learning, including approximately 40 hours of structured contact time (4 contact days).

These contact days consist of lectures, workshops, group discussion and directed study. The remainder of the learning is self directed, based on the students own learning goals, such as topics introduced in the lectures that the student can explore in more depth, and background reading for the written assignment.

Module content:

  • Theoretical and practical aspects of key topics required to practice as a leader in stroke rehabilitation.

  • Pathophysiology of stroke, presentations and prognosis of major stroke subtypes, complications and secondary prevention.

  • Multidisciplinary rehabilitation of motor, tone, swallowing, speech, perceptual, sensory and cognitive deficits;

  • Goal setting and outcome assessment.

  • Disabilities and handicaps will be presented in an interconnected way in order to develop a full and sophisticated understanding of the complexity and interdisciplinary nature of stroke rehabilitation.
