Teaching and learning disclaimer
Following the impact of the pandemic, we made changes to our teaching and assessment to ensure our current students could continue with their studies uninterrupted and safely. These changes included courses being taught through blended delivery, normally including some face-to-face teaching, online provision, or a combination of both across the year.
The teaching and assessment methods listed show what is currently planned for 2021 entry; changes may be necessary if, by the beginning of this course, we need to adapt the way we’re delivering them due to the external environment, and to allow you to continue to receive the best education possible safely and seamlessly.
This module is supported by a dedicated, regularly updated, student-centred website (using Moodle) offering online assessment (mock and real) news, online case studies, resources, web links, tutor access, online help (24/7), course information and other relevant material.
You are expected to have an identified mentor in your workplace that is able to support you with the development of the skills required for the soft tissue and joint injection therapy module.
Summative assessment consists of three components:
- record of ten musculoskeletal cases injected under supervision. There is no weighting for this component, but it must be passed
- evidence of reflective practice and clinical reasoning in logbook format (this is intended to reflect your experience and should document key issues that have been considered whilst developing injection therapy skills) – weighting: 60 per cent
- one case study (the role of injection therapy for one patient) – weighting: 40 per cent
