In conjunction with Osteopathic Skills 1, it provides the foundation skills for all subsequent osteopathic skills modules for the programme.

  • SHF200 Clinical Biomechanics and Imaging

    This module will examine the assessment of human movement, in terms of kinaesthesiology with an emphasis on clinical application of biomechanical principles in assessment, treatment and rehabilitation. Additionally, students will be introduced to the theory underpinning medical imaging and the clinical interpretation of various forms of imaging used in musculoskeletal assessment.

  • SHF203 Osteopathic Skills 3

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic diagnostic and assessment skills modules in year 1 to explore the application of key clinical skills at a developed level.

  • SHF204 Osteopathic Skills 4

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic skills in year 1 and year 2 to explore, evaluate and consolidate the application of key clinical skills at a developed level.

  • SHF205 Pathophysiology and Therapeutics 1

    This module will explore the processes underlying pathological acute conditions, such as infection, immunity, metabolism, cancer and degeneration. Common conditions affecting whole body systems, such as musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, renal and gastro-intestinal, will be discussed in terms of pathogenesis, clinical presentations, impact upon the patient and its therapeutic management.

  • SHF206 Pathophysiology and Therapeutics 2

    This module will explore the processes underlying pathological chronic conditions, such as metabolism, cancer and degeneration. Common conditions affecting whole body systems, such as musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, endocrine, renal and gastro-intestinal, will be discussed in terms of pathogenesis, clinical presentations, impact upon the patient and its therapeutic management.

  • SHF304 Osteopathic Skills 5

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic skills in year 1 and 2 to explore the application of key diagnostic and assessment skills at an advanced level and within the context of people presenting with complex and/or multiple conditions.

  • SHF307 Osteopathic Skills 6

    This module builds upon the other osteopathic skills in year 1, 2 and 3 to explore the application of key clinical skills at an advanced level and within the context of people presenting with complex and/or multiple conditions.

  • SHVM46 Chronic Pain Management

    The experience of chronic pain has a major impact upon a person¿s quality of life and it can often limit their level of physical functioning. Therefore, it is important to have effective strategies and treatment options available to decide the best method of clinical intervention. There are two main approaches to chronic pain management ¿ pharmacological and non-pharmacological (i.e. electrotherapy, massage, acupuncture, etc). This module will examine each option in terms of its evidence base and clinical application.
