Course Descriptions - Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy/Health Promotion I PHYT 5114   Cardiorespiratory Physiotherapy/Health Promotion I
The purpose of this course is for students to develop the competencies needed to provide safe, effective, evidence-based, patient-centered interventions for people with acute cardiopulmonary impairments and associated disabilities. Clinical reasoning is a key skill to achieving this goal. Students will be expected to use knowledge of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and movement science to inform and enhance their understanding of normal function of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems and the interactions between these and other organ systems that affect patients’ health and well-being. Communication is another key skill needed to develop a therapeutic relationship with patients and their support networks, and to facilitate behavior change, a key component in the prevention and treatment of disease.
