General Information

Overview

You will develop knowledge and clinical skills relating to the comprehensive management of adult and paediatric patients with acute and chronic cardiac and respiratory conditions (e.g. ischaemic heart disease, heart failure, COPD, cystic fibrosis, bronchiectasis and pneumonia). You will apply the principles of evidence-based approaches to cardiorespiratory physiotherapy management of patients in the context of biological, social and psychological factors. You will relate the role of the cardiorespiratory physiotherapist working in a diverse range of hospital and community care facilities to that of the inter-professional team, family members and carers of patients.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Have Your Say

Feedback

Topics in cardiorespiratory are complex and lecture slides were very comprehensive and well structured, however it would be helpful if some information could be cut down.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the teaching team review the content of all lecture slides to ensure the most relevant content is included.

Feedback from Have Your Say

Feedback

More time is needed to be spent on the interpretation of Spirometry.

Recommendation

It is recommended that the clinical practical skills session on Spirometry is restructured to included more cases to help students interpret Spirometry.

Feedback from Have Your Say

Feedback

The structure of the unit is fantastic and the layout of lectures as well. The condensing of information and tutorial support to focus on key information is also extremely well done!

Recommendation

It is recommended that the structure of the unit is maintained and that the open door policy for individual and small group tutorials is maintained.
