Clinical Exercise Science Case Studies 2 - EXSS5066

This unit will develop a high level of knowledge, clinical decision making and problem-solving skill by using complex cases related to clinical exercise physiology practice. The cases will include pathologies in cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, cancers, neoplastic conditions and neurological intellectual clinical conditions. Academic staff and experienced Exercise Physiology practitioners will use clinical scenarios and problem-based learning to guide students through the process of selecting and administering appropriate screening and assessment tools and developing effective, individualized exercise management plans. The clinical scenarios will present more complex cases than previously covered and will require the student to integrate prior knowledge and experiences with new learning.
