2020 unit offering information will be available in September 2019
Builds on previous learning and focuses on the application of foundational knowledge in the areas of cardiovascular health. Students will develop theoretical and practical skills for exercise assessment, and the design and delivery of safe, evidence based interventions for individuals with cardiovascular conditions and co-morbidities.
- Pathological and pathophysiological bases of cardiovascular conditions and co-morbidities.
- Multidisciplinary management of cardiovascular conditions and co-morbidities.
- Cardiovascular indications and contraindications for exercise.
- Clinical exercise testing and monitoring.
- 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.
