The course is a follow-up to the course "Demonstration - Clinical Practice I". The aim of practical training is to apply and further deepen the knowledge and skills into practice, ie the work of a physiotherapist, under the direct guidance of a lecturer. The focus of the course is to work with the patient, to apply new knowledge and skills from other practical and theoretical subjects. The subject also includes a demonstration of patients by the teacher, elaboration of differential diagnostics, work with medical documentation, creation of short-term and long-term rehabilitation plan by the student for the given patient. Great emphasis in teaching is on procedures in the spirit of EBP (Evidence-Based Physiotherapy) Individual parts of the content of the teaching are very closely intertwined so they can not be divided from each other.

Aim of the course

Learning Outcomes:

The course aims to provide students with the knowledge, skills and general competencies so that after the completion of the course, the student:

  • demonstrates practical knowledge of therapeutic processes for dysfunctions of the movement system
  • according to the actual health state of the patient, the student is able to compose and apply an appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic approach
  • demonstrate the ability to apply the theoretically acquired knowledge from gradual bachelor subjects
  • demonstrates the ability to apply knowledge and skills from the other clinical subjects of master physiotherapeutic studies
  • is able to design appropriate therapeutic plan in physical therapy context for the patient
  • is able to make adequate documentation of diagnostic and therapy in health documentation
  • is able to communicate with the other professionals in the context of solved patient
