Builds on previous learning and focuses on the application of foundational knowledge in the areas of musculoskeletal health, injury prevention, and rehabilitation principles in a multidisciplinary environment. Students will develop skills in clinical assessment, and the design and delivery of safe, evidence-based exercise interventions for individuals with musculoskeletal conditions.
- Pathological and pathophysiological bases of musculoskeletal conditions and injuries.
- Multidisciplinary management including common medications, surgical, medical and allied health treatments and/or interventions.
- Clinical signs and symptoms, and indications and contraindications for exercise.
- Clinical assessment; and monitoring of rehabilitation programs.
- Design and delivery of safe and effective, evidence-based exercise interventions.
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.
