About this Unit
Exercise Rehabilitation focuses on the assessment and management of patients using exercise training. All patient groups are covered but there is an emphasis on cardiorespiratory disorders. Professional competencies addressed in this unit include an understanding of the normal physiological responses to exercise, the implications of pathology and exercise. The unit also includes further development and practice of skills in the patient physical examination, and clinical reasoning such that hypothesized problem lists and goals for patients are developed. The prescription of exercise-based interventions with other physiotherapy modalities is also covered. This unit also facilitates the attainment of professional competencies including effective communication skills, ethical reasoning, professional behaviour, and an appreciation of interprofessional care.
