About this Unit
In 2017, this unit is replaced by 401145 - Exercise for Health and Disease Prevention. Clinical Exercise Physiology 1 is primarily concerned with teaching students how to design and implement exercise assessments and exercise prescriptions for clinical populations (high-risk). Emphasis is placed on cardiovascular, metabolic, pulmonary and immunological diseases. Unit content relates to how exercise can be applied to prevent, manage and/or treat chronic diseases, informed by an understanding of the pathophysiology and its impact on health status. Students will be involved in designing exercise programs using an evidence-based approach, which will enable a client to achieve optimum results whilst maintaining a high regard for safety, adherence and motivation. Students will be involved in practical sessions aimed at developing the skills necessary for exercise screening, testing and prescription in clinical populations.
