Presentation

Throughout our lives, even before we are born, a range of illnesses may appear or accidents may occur which require the attention of different healthcare professionals.

At present it can be said that advances in technology and care in child healthcare guarantee a greater life expectancy for children with altered levels of activity. However, despite this, there is a wide range of chronic conditions which means that the intervention of qualified and motivated professionals is necessary to collaborate to improve the quality of life of children with disabilities, and that of their families.

What’s more, neurological disorders in the adult population are varied, from cranioencephalic traumas to strokes, and neurodegenerative conditions. This wide range and diversity calls for an intense and specific interdisciplinary approach, whether the context is the home or the hospital. Therefore, a more extensive specialization in theory and practice is required than that offered by a degree.

This training programme offers a multidimensional approach to the child patient and the neurological adult, from different aspects of treatment, with the final objective of detecting deficits and affecting activity, by planning treatment based on scientific evidence, both in terms of activity and participating in one’s environment, which is essentially a person’s quality of life.
