Teaching period

5th semester

 

Learning outcomes

By the end of the semester the students should have comprehended:

  • The disorders of movement, standing and balance, for kids with cerebral paralysis and patients with diseases of the peripheral nervous system,
  • The management of the muscle tone disorders,
  • The clinical and kinetic deficits on patients with diseases of the peripheral nervous system,
  • The way that physiotherapy affects the above.

 

Teaching method

  • Audiovisual means (video projections)
  • Student projects
  • Clinical presentations

Assessment

Assessment of the theoretical part of Physiotherapy in Neurological Diseases I takes place in the end of the semester and has 2 examination periods. In case somebody fails in the 1st exam, they may take the 2nd. If they fail twice, they have to attend the module/subject again. The examination students take is consisted of open and closed type questions. The final grade of the subject derives from the average of the theoretical and laboratory part and has to be 5 out of 10 or higher. Nevertheless, the students need to achieve 5 out of 10 for each of the parts to consider the subject passed. The examination’s duration is 2 hours. After passing the theoretical and laboratory part, the students are awarded with 5 ECTS credits.
