The unit will develop knowledge, clinical decision making and practical skills for the assessment, design and delivery of physical activity for clientele with frailty and disability and target conditions in the neurological AEP pathology domains. Clinical scenarios will be used to develop understanding of the pathological and pathophysiolgical bases for neurological disease and disability 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 neurological condition management. Students will develop the capacity for appropriate assessment, monitoring, prescription and implementation of physical activity for neurologial clientele and those with frailty and disability, to ultimately design and deliver safe and effective physical activity management plans that are individualised and evidence-based.
