The Discipline of Physiotherapy welcomes both taught and research postgraduate students on a full time or part time basis.
The strategic direction of the research in the Discipline embraces two high level themes:
Non-pharmacological management of chronic disease: this broadly encompasses the role of physical activity and rehabilitation models in the primary prevention, secondary prevention, amelioration of clinical disease symtoms and lifestyle management across a range of chronic diseases such as cancer, cardiorespiratory disease, HIV and mental health.
Professional issues and practice: this theme incorporates research into the practice of physiotherapists for example use of outcome measurement, evidence-based practice, ergonomics and motivational strategies in the patient-client interaction. In addition, research into the leadership of physiotherapists in Ireland and Singapore is being undertaken.
We offer MSc and PhD programmes by research and a recently launched online Post-Graduate Certificate in Clinical Exercise.
