PETRHA+ is a continuation of the PETRHA project which allows European physiotherapy students to train themselves in the clinical process and to structure clinical reasoning through the creation of virtual clinical cases based on real patients in geriatrics.

The PETRHA+ created a training system focused on the development of clinical reasoning for European students in Physiotherapy. It enables them to train themselves in the clinical process and structure their clinical reasoning through the creation of virtual clinical cases based on real paediatric patients.

More broadly, the project’s perspective is to consider a harmonised practice between European countries, responding to the initial training standards in physiotherapy, in order to guarantee the creation of a flexible tool that can be adapted to all standards.

PETRHA+ gives a significant place to students. Physiotherapy students from partner institutions participated in the learning outcomes related to clinical cases, both in their development and in the assessment of their peers from other countries. They also had the opportunity to participate in various events including the 2nd edition of the European PETRHA Cup!

After three years of work, the PETRHA+ team has developed three outputs. Click below to discover them:
