The unit will develop knowledge, clinical decision making and practical skills for the assessment, design and delivery of physical activity for target conditions in the cardiopulmonary, metabolic and kidney disease AEP pathology domains. Clinical scenarios will be used to develop understanding of the pathological and pathophysiolgical bases for disease, diagnostic procedures, medical and allied health management, including medications. This will require the student to integrate prior knowledge, skills and experiences with new learning in the context of metabolic, cardiopulmonary and kidney disease management. Students will develop the capacity for appropriate assessment, monitoring, prescription and implementation of physical activity for cardiopulmonary and metabolic disease clientele including those with chronic kidney disease, to ultimately design and deliver safe and effective physical activity management plans that are individualised and evidence-based.
