This unit deals with the selected areas of sports medicine that have relevance for individuals involved in physical activity programs. Topics covered include fundamentals of inflammation and healing in tissue, mechanisms of injury in sport (emphasising trauma and overuse), prevention and management of injuries, the importance of prehabilitation, strapping and taping techniques, drugs in sport and managing the athlete who is asthmatic, diabetic or epileptic. Emphasis is on a practical context with relevance to emergency care and clinical applications such as surface anatomy and the anatomical basis of common injuries. As such it is a requirement of the unit that students attain a current nationally recognised First Aid and resuscitation certification.
Upon successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Review and evaluate the primary responsibilities that working as part of a multidisciplinary team has in preventing sports injuries and providing initial care for athletes who are injured;
2. Examine the anatomical, physiological and pathological characteristics of selected sports injuries;
3. Assess, appraise and appropriately treat common sports injuries and conditions from onset through to rehabilitation; and
4. Translate ethical issues into responsible actions in the Allied Health Field.
Two 1 hour lectures and one 2 hour practical per week.
