This unit focuses on the development of understanding and skills relating to the design and implementation of physical activity based interventions in the scope of Accredited Exercise Physiology practice. The unit ultimately aims to develop the capacity for design and delivery of safe and effective exercise plans that consider client treatment goals, medical history, clinical status and other influencing factors using an evidence-based practice approach as foundation. These individualised interventions will positively affect functional capacity, health and/or behaviours of the individual. Students will develop skills in the use of behaviour change for lifestyle intervention, and in the monitoring and revision of exercise and exercise programs, for application in the context of target conditions in the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular domains and a broad range of target pathologies and complex cases.
