This 6 day module is designed for physiotherapists who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of the heart through life, health and disease; and use that knowledge to inform their advanced clinical practice. 

The course will review the normal development and physiology of the heart. It will include the aetiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology and presentation of selected congenital and acquired heart diseases and disorders. Relevant medical investigations, interventions and outcome measures will be critically evaluated in light of the current evidence and service provision. Central to the module will be discussion and debate regarding the contemporary approaches to prevention and treatment of heart disease. 

This module will encourage detailed understanding of the function of the heart in health and disease. It will also cover the aetiology, epidemiology, pathophysiology and presentation of selected cardiac conditions and in particular their relevance for medical and rehabilitative management. 

Students will be encouraged to reflect critically on their own practice and scope of practice and will be expected to actively participate in discussions, debate and workshops. 

The module content will be presented via interactive e-learning content on the UCL virtual learning environment moodle, lectures, seminars and core reading material.

You'll need to be a qualified physiotherapist, with a degree in physiotherapy at least equivalent to 2:2 BSc qualification in the UK.

You can take it as:

a standalone short course for CPD purposes (with certificate of attendance).

a 'taster module' earning UCL credits.

The assessment will be based on the submission of a 2000 word (30 minutes to work through) multi-media evidence-based online resource for students (100%).
