Explores the pathophysiology of common disease states, methods used in diagnosis, treatment and management, the concept of individualised medicine and the impact of disease states on a client's capacity to exercise. Additionally, explores the role and mechanisms of physical activity and exercise in reducing related risk factors and managing common disease states.
- Introduction to pathophysiology and the pathophysiology of metabolic disease
- Musculoskeletal disease
- Cardiorespiratory disease
- Neurological disease
- Cancer pathophysiology and implications for exercise
- Mental health
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.
|On completion of this unit, students should be able to:|
|1||explore the pathophysiology of common disease states|
|2||describe the mechanisms of exercise in the prevention and management of common conditions|
|3||explore current advances in the role of exercise in the treatment and management of common chronic disease conditions|
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
- explore the pathophysiology of common disease states
- describe the mechanisms of exercise in the prevention and management of common conditions
- explore current advances in the role of exercise in the treatment and management of common chronic disease conditions
