Paediatric physiotherapy involves the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions occurring in infancy that disturb the development of motor skills and limit the potential for functional independence in adulthood. Read more
Paediatric physiotherapy involves the treatment of both acute and chronic conditions occurring in infancy that disturb the development of motor skills and limit the potential for functional independence in adulthood. Paediatric physiotherapy is a specialty field of physiotherapy that requires specific knowledge, training and interest.

This sub-field represents a clinical science in a constant process of ongoing change and development. Scientific discoveries yielded by recent studies in neuroscience and the study of movement have recently brought radical changes and modern updates to the practise of physiotherapy. This non-stop development means that professionals must be ready and willing to constantly enhance their skills and incorporate new findings into their practice.

Knowledge in psychomotor development, movement education and control and adaptations to growth are some of the aspects that help paediatric physiotherapists design effective therapeutic strategies and help the child’s motor skills reach their full potential.

This postgraduate course is designed to provide specialised training to physiotherapists dedicated to working in paediatrics, infant development, early assessment, special education and orthopaedic paediatrics.

El máster en fisioterapia pediátrica se propone como una especialización fisioterápica consistente en el diagnóstico y tratamiento de aquellas afecciones que conllevan una alteración del desarrollo motor del niño, y que condicionan su nivel de independencia funcional. La aplicación de los conocimientos relacionados con el desarrollo psicomotor, el aprendizaje, el control del movimiento y las adaptaciones al crecimiento, constituye una herramienta básica en el tratamiento preventivo y la atención precoz, destinada a ayudar al niño a alcanzar su máximo potencial de desarrollo, independencia e integración social.

La formación especializada debe permitir al fisioterapeuta identificar las alteraciones, déficits y/o deficiencias del niño; determinar los objetivos de la intervención terapéutica; seleccionar y planificar las estrategias de forma óptima y, por último, aplicarlas con la suficiente destreza y experiencia. Dichas actuaciones deben sustentarse en conocimientos científicos y basarse en la evidencia para poder ofrecer una terapia de calidad. Es por ello que este máster contribuye a la actualización, mejora y adecuación de las competencias del fisioterapeuta a las demandas de salud de la sociedad en general y de los niños en particular.

This course is for people who are working as physiotherapists, who wish to develop themselves and their profession. The MSc in Advancing Physiotherapy Practice aims to help you thrive in health and social contexts where the pace of change is high and professionals need to be dynamic and proactive to meet the needs of the people they work with.

The programme of study aims to be:

-Clinical: with a focus on highly topical subjects, ability to learn in and from the workplace, practical experience, and ability to take specialist clinical and practice routes: for example, musculoskeletal physiotherapy, neurological physiotherapy, cardiorespiratory physiotherapy, paediatric physiotherapy, leadership and management, and education.

- Flexible: with a determination to enable study for students who have a variety of circumstances, and who live in different countries. Two paces of study are available (full-time and part-time) and two modes of study (distance learning, and blended learning which requires attendance). The standard full-time pace is 18 months, which can be accelerated to 12 months where relevant requirements are met. Please see the section on study routes for further details.

- Supportive: with a focus on helping you to adjust to master’s level study at the start of the programme, to stay engaged with your profession throughout the course, and to increase your employability as you progress towards completion. Alongside modules you will be involved in a ‘Learning in Community Programme,’ which includes study skills training, social events, CPD opportunities such as Master Classes, and opportunities and guidance to increase your employability, including guidance on professional registration.

The knowledge and skills developed over the course are intended to enable you to lead and implement innovative change within physiotherapy workplaces in the UK and internationally.

Study routes

-Full-time with attendance (12-18 months): The full-time study route makes use of blended mode of learning which includes face-to-face contact supported by online resources. This is designed with international students in mind and offers attractive practical modules as well as opportunities to learn in clinical settings (see modules). The standard duration of the full-time route is 18 months. This is valuable if your priority is to use all opportunities to develop your professional standing and employability. If you wish to prioritise quick completion of your MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice, and meet requirements, you can accelerate it to 12 months duration.

-Part-time with attendance (3-7 years): You can study the MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice part-time, with a minimum duration of 3 years, and maximum duration of 7 years. If you study this route you can select modules that involve some attendance and some online study. For example, some modules are delivered with blocks of attendance and online study between these blocks. If you study part-time you can also choose to complete distance learning modules as part of your programme.

-Distance learning (part-time or full-time) (1-7 years): You can choose modules that enable you to complete your MSc Advancing Physiotherapy Practice entirely as distance learning . You can study distance learning at a full-time pace (12-18 months duration) or at a part-time pace (3-7 years).

Teaching, learning and assessment

We use a range of student-centred learning methods, including tutorials, seminars and practical classes, with facilitation of work-based learning and recognition of prior learning. Further specific strategies are used to enable distance learning.
Your performance will be assessed by coursework (assignments), presentations and practical examinations, and you are provided with structured support in learning how to develop and demonstrate your academic skills at a master’s level. Class sizes are usually 5-10 students.

Teaching hours and attendance

Each module that is studied on-campus will require you to attend classes and carry out independent work. Your attendance requirements at QMU will vary between semesters of study, but contact time might average about six hours per week over one academic year; this would be higher during taught modules. Whether you are studying distance learning or through a mixture of face-to-face contact and online work (blended learning), each 30-credit module will entail around 300 hours of student work. This includes contact with tutors (online or face-to-face), supported by independent learning. When thinking about the total amount of learning, for the full-time pace of study, you will undertake 120 credits of study over two 15-week semesters, followed by your dissertation. This suggests up to 40 hours per week of study. A student who chooses to study part-time may be undertaking, for example, 60 credits of study, which would equate to about 20 hours per week of study. The distance learning route can be studied part-time or full-time.

Links with industry/professional bodies

In order to design a flexible, clinical and supportive programme, we talked with current students, ex-students and employers internationally. We collaborate with many physiotherapists and managers locally to create opportunities for our students to contribute to the development of physiotherapy services during their programmes. This ensures the relevance of their studies, their professional development, and advancement of the physiotherapy profession. The MSc Physiotherapy is accredited by the UK’s Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (to be confirmed following recent revalidation). This course does not lead to HCPC registration. However, advice is given to assist the process of registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). Course material will also help the student to develop knowledge and skills recognised by the HCPC.

What is this course about?

There has been a growing demand for Strength and Conditioning practitioners outside of professional sport structures, with the increasing professionalisation of amateur sports such as the GAA. The 'fitness trainer' of a decade ago that tended to be assume sole responsibility for the physical conditioning of inter-county Gaelic football and hurling/camogie teams, has now been replaced by 'Strength and Conditioning teams'. There is also a pattern of Strength and Conditioning practitioners working closely with special populations (paediatric & seniors), physiotherapists, sports rehabilitators and athletic therapists in both prevention and rehabilitation of athletes to return them to performance from injury. This new two year part-time programme will provide an opportunity for students to study for a MSc in Strength and Conditioning, corresponding to a Level 9 Qualification (90 ECTS credits). The overall aim of the programme is to provide an intellectually challenging applied postgraduate programme of study that will give graduates advanced knowledge, understanding and practical coaching skills in Strength and Conditioning. This will enable them to work with both elite athletes and specialist population groups. Graduates of the programme will be eligible to apply for membership to the Irish Institute of Sport (IIS), United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association (UKSCA) and the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) based in the United States of America.

Programme Details:
The first part of the programme is designed to develop the knowledge, skills and analytical techniques in the sub-disciplines of Advanced Resistance Training, Explosive Conditioning, Metabolic Conditioning, Sports Nutrition and Periodisation. With the primary emphasis on preparing athletes and players for optimum sports performance, these modules combine more advanced theoretical and practical elements of Strength and Conditioning, providing students with the skillls to operate as a Strength and Conditioning Practitioner in a sports performance environment. The elective options of the programme provide the opportunity for students to develop further specialist skills; ranging from Injury Rehabilitation and Reconditioning and High Performance Testing, to the emerging fields of Strength and Conditioning for paediatric and geriatric population groups. Students who elect to complete the full MSc programme will also undertake a Research Project in a relevant field of study that will hone their research and analytical skills.
