the Modules

All DevelopingPhysio modules are written, critiqued, proofed and refined by physios in the field, their students and senior specialist physios from each clinical field. This team building and proofing process ensures the modules are :

  • basic
  • intuitively laid out
  • have in-built clinical reasoning and differential diagnosis
  • use picture flow diagrams to avoid language barriers
  • can be translated where text is useful
  • inspire safe, clinical reasoning
  • contain cultural sensitivity
  • provide a foundation in anatomy, physiology and pathology
  • guide the student safely through assessment, diagnosis and treatment stages
  • are simple to learn
  • are simple to use
