This unit develops the appropriate skills and knowledge to facilitate exercise therapy within cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
