General description This subject aims to train students to choose the apropriate technics of electrotherapy, ultrasonic therapy, light therapy, magnetic therapy, massage therapy, hydrotherapy and balneotherapy, based on existing scientific knowledge, clinical experience and specific needs (contextual, clinical and psychosocial ones). To get it, the key points are the knowledge of the physical nature of each agent, the effects produced (other adjustable parameters) and how they translate them into physiological and therapeutic effects. To get the skills in the use of equipment and techniques, self working- besides the laboratory classes -is required. One group in the second module (electrotherapy and ultrasonotherapy) will be in ENGLISH for those students interested (but ONLY in the SECOND TERM, so there WILL NOT BE ANY ENGLISH CLASSES IN THE FIRST TERM- NOR THEORETICAL NOR PRACTICAL LESSONS).
Contingency plan 1. Modifications to the contents There will be no substantial modification of the contents, but the focus will be on the most relevant aspects for the acquisition of the competences. 2. Methodologies *Teaching methodologies that are maintained Guest lecture, collaborative learning *Teaching methodologies that are modified Laboratory practices- cases will be presented through videos or photographs and discussions will be established in the corresponding practical groups. Mixed test - will become multiple-choice test Practical test- can be done through a graphic document (with image, sound or movement) or work done on a practical case. 3. Mechanisms for personalized attention to students At the request of the students in written format via email for the clarification of doubts; or via moodle through forums or direct consultations, mainly to clarify doubts or solve written tasks. For virtual meetings, TEAMS will be used upon request. The teachers will establish telematic meetings with the students for the development of the different activities, fundamentally, the expository classes and workshops, or they will supply with the explained classes. 4. Modifications in the evaluation The evaluation criteria and methodologies will be maintained, making an adaptation of the mixed test that will become multiple response and the practice that can be done through a graphic document (image or video) and / or written work done on a practical case *Evaluation observations: It is necessary to pass both semesters to be able to calculate the final mean and pass the whole of the subject. In addition, it only be possible if your marks in theoretical or practical tests are at least 50%. 5. Modifications to the bibliography or webgraphy None, all the contents will be accessed from the slideshows, or will be suministered by the teacher
