Louise Carroll, Ireland: participated in 2014

This is the only Aquatic Therapy course that I came across offering 10 European Credit Transfers (ECTs) which I was able use as part of of my Masters degree in Advanced HealthCare Practice, University of Limerick, Ireland.

The course offers ample opportunity to mix both practical clinical experience with an evidence based theory and practice approach. As part of the course, I was able to consolidate my learning through my participation in both the group based learning scenarios and individual assessments. Once I returned home to my work in the Pediatric community setting, I was set the task of carrying out case studies with two patients in the aquatic therapy pool environment. This was an excellent opportunity for me to put my new clinical practice knowledge and advanced handling skills into practice with real life clients.

I saw first hand the benefits of my treatment approach and the feedback I received from both Urs Gamper and Johan Lambeck was invaluable. Both Johan and Urs offered me outstanding support and feedback throughout the course, which continued whilst I was completing my case studies. I would recommend this Post graduate module to all therapist working within the Aquatic Therapy environment as the tutors on the course had a wealth of knowledge to share with all participants.
There is no other course quiet like it!!
