Foundations of Clinical Practice - CHIR322

This unit provides the student with foundations relevant for clinical practice.  Students will be introduced to components of chiropractic clinical practice including: practice management, clinical information gathering and assessment (including history-taking and diagnostic imaging) and differential diagnosis. Further exploration of the relationship between health and disease will occur through the development of clinical problem solving skills crucial for chiropractors. An emphasis will be placed on the assessment of musculoskeletal conditions relevant to chiropractic practice and the recognition of conditions outside the scope of chiropractic care. The community engagement and practical components of this PACE unit will occur in the Macquarie University Chiropractic Outpatient Clinics. Students will experience elements of clinical information gathering, patient-practitioner and inter-practitioner interactions and the management of a modern chiropractic outpatient facility.
