A brief outline of the course content – day by day.

Day 1

Leanne Mulllane Cert Ed will introduce the start of the day with the skeletal system giving learners an understanding of basic anatomy and physiology. Thereafter a lecture on the anatomy and physiology of the muscular system, followed by a practical session of putting the theoretical knowledge into practice by building the muscles discussed on the model skeletons therefore ensuring a full understanding of the topic for learners.

After lunch types of joints, tendons and ligaments will be discussed to give an understanding of basic Anatomy and Physiology expanding their knowledge.

Day one is closed with a recap of the days events to resolve any queries that may have arisen.

Day 2

Day 2 then continues with Rebecca Winter RVN Dip A Phys MBVNA lecturing the management of Medical Conditions in hydrotherapy. Catherine will discuss the management of conditions such as Diabetes and Cushing’s disease in the hydrotherapy patient detailing their signs, symptoms and their management within the hydrotherapy setting.
