Bachelor of Physiotherapy
Physiotherapists assess, diagnose, plan and manage the care of patients across a broad range of areas with musculoskeletal, cardiothoracic and neurological problems. They help patients with chronic disease management, provide lifestyle modification and self-management advice, prescribe aids and appliances, prescribe and supervise exercises for both patients and carers, and provide health promotion education, occupational health assessments and injury prevention activities. Occupational therapist provides health care, vocational rehabilitation, and consultancy to people with problems that stop them participating in activities they want or need to do. Occupational therapist often works with people who have a disability, illness or have suffered an injury.
