This unit will develop a higher level of knowledge, clinical decision making and problem-solving skills 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 practitioners will use clinical scenarios 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.
