Students will be randomly assigned to small groups to develop an educational patient resource that could be used in clinical Physiotherapy practice. This patient resource must be a written resource and can be submitted in the form of either a pamphlet, poster or booklet. Students will choose a topic from a list provided at the start of term. Each group must decide on their chosen topic and have this checked by the Unit Coordinator by the end of Week 3.
The developed resource must include patient targeted education, techniques for self management of their clinical condition and exercise rehabilitation. Intervention and educational choices must be informed by relevant evidence based literature. This developed resource is due on Friday 2nd of June, Week 12.
Each group will then present their developed resource to their peers. Presentations will be 10 minutes, including time for questions. Groups can choose to utilize power point, white boards or posters to present this information. During this presentation students must discuss and reference the evidence based literature that has informed their intervention choices. Presentations will take place during the examination period and may be scheduled outside of usual teaching hours. The confirmed assessment date and a presentation timetable will be released prior to Week 12. Each group's presentation will be peer assessed by another group, which will contribute to 5% of the total grade for this assessment task.
Students will also be required to self assess both their individual participation and their peers’ participation in this assessment item by completing a self and peer assessment survey (SPA).
Referencing should follow the APA format.
