Bridget Ward is one of the volunteers on the volunteer orientation course.
I have worked as a Clinical Physiotherapist in both public and private sectors in Melbourne and Dublin, Ireland. My main clinical experience is in the areas of Orthopaedics and Rheumatology. I spent many years supervising undergraduate students from the University of Melbourne, as well as students from Latrobe University and UCD.
For the past 8 1/2 years I have worked in Practice Management in our Multidisciplinary Clinic Bellbird Sports and Spinal in Melbourne Australia. I have focused on developing the clinical reasoning skills and passion for the profession within our own staff and students, alongside the business management side of a busy private practice. I have written material for, and delivered training in the following areas: Continuing Professional Development, Marketing, QA, HR, Child Safety, OHS, Reception Management, Clinical Services Management ( Pilates, Hydrotherapy, Myotherapy, Physiotherapy, Podiatry).
