Overview

This is an advanced clinical skills course for the Bachelor of Sport and Exercise Science (Honours) - Clinical Exercise Physiology. Clinical skills gained during the program will be extended to include working with people with chronic clinical conditions, multi-trauma, or complex co-morbidities, people with disabilities, individuals from different races, cultures, and minority groups, refugees, first nations people, and people injured through armed service, war, or torture. The curriculum in this course is constructed to meet requirements of the professional accreditation in exercise physiology set down by the professional body, Exercise and Sports Science Australia.

This course builds upon SES3202 with further exploration of the roles and responsibilities of the clinical exercise physiology profession within the Australian healthcare system, including working with people with chronic clinical conditions, multi-trauma, or complex co-morbidities, people with disabilities, individuals from different races, cultures, and minority groups, refugees, first nations people, and people injured through armed service, war, or torture. This course will further develop the practical skills required by students when working with clinical populations to provide exercise assessment and testing, prescription of exercise interventions, and monitoring of clients' progress throughout the prescribed exercise programs. The course requires interactive engagement for students to develop ability to analyse the rationale behind their clinical skills and decision-making processes.

This course contains a mandatory residential school at the Ipswich campus for external students and mandatory on-campus practical sessions for on-campus students.
