Rehabilitation is a growing area of need not only in Australia but worldwide due to the ageing population and increasing prevalence of chronic disease. The demand for a workforce supporting older adults and those requiring rehabilitation and restorative care, is similarly expected to increase along with the need for health care professionals with postgraduate qualifications. ACU understands the importance of working with the health care industry and has developed this revised program in consultation with industry partners.
The Graduate Certificate in Rehabilitation is the initial program nested within the Master of Rehabilitation. The Graduate Certificate has been purposefully developed to provide evidence-based studies for registered health professionals who are seeking to extend knowledge and skills in the provision of rehabilitation or restorative care, for promotion and professional recognition, or their return to the workforce.
The Graduate Certificate in Rehabilitation prepares clinicians to be an enhanced evidence-based clinician within an interprofessional team. The course has four units, two units focussing on enhancing rehabilitation knowledge and skills within an interprofessional team and two elective units enabling practitioners/clinicians to customise their learning to their relevant context and learning needs.
