2020 unit offering information will be available in September 2019
Focuses on the consolidation of foundational knowledge of the chronic conditions and related co-morbidities associated with the respiratory/pulmonary and kidney diseases and cancer. Students construct a comprehensive, evidence-based understanding of the application of clinical exercise physiology for the provision of effective exercise interventions in multidisciplinary settings.
Pathological and pathophysiological bases of:
- Respiratory/pulmonary conditions
- Cancer and co-morbidities
- Kidney diseases and co-morbidities
- Working in a multidisciplinary team
- Ongoing support for maintenance of exercise
- Clinical reasoning in client care
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.
