2024 unit information

This blended unit will develop students clinical problem-solving and clinical reasoning skills using a case based approach to learning. The unit will include online learning modules attached to a series of in-class case study presentations and discussions where students will apply their integrated knowledge of pathophysiology and evidence for exercise in designing individualised assessment and intervention plans for a range of patient populations across the aging related and neurological health domains. Students will also learn how to facilitate and monitor exercise through case study tutorials and interacting with clientele who have specific health conditions in practical classes
