Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items

As a result of the Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. These changes will not be updated in the published Unit Outline but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.

New learning activities and/or assessment items are available on your unit's UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Please contact your Unit Convener with any questions.

Syllabus

This unit provides a study of the functional anatomy of the musculoskeletal system in relation to movement, exercise and musculoskeletal pathology. Lab work is based in the wet anatomy lab with extensive use of human cadaver specimens. Tutorials are designed to encourage students to integrate their knowledge of human musculoskeletal anatomy in a functional context. Tutorials will provide an opportunity for students to develop observational and palpation skills in surface anatomy, movement analysis and assessment, as well as introduce skills in prescription of strength and range of motion exercises.

Combined teaching of undergraduate and graduate Musculoskeletal Functional Anatomy will take place in this unit.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Identify musculoskeletal structures of the human body including bones, joints, ligaments, special structures, and deep and superficial muscles (Origin, Insertion, Nerve, Action);

2. Observe and palpate the major surface landmarks of musculoskeletal anatomy;

3. Identify, demonstrate and evaluate all actions of the spine and peripheral joints (movements available - AROM);

4. Identify, demonstrate and evaluate passive range of motion and resisted strength testing of the spine and peripheral joints;

5. Identify both the synergists and antagonists involved in coordinated functional activities of human movement;

6. Provide basic prescription of strength and range of motion exercises.
