Learning outcomesAfter successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Explain the pathophysiological bases and evidence-based treatment for core, niche and emerging areas of contemporary clinical practice as an ESSA Accredited Exercise Physiologist;
2. Design and evaluate safe and effective exercise interventions across a range of clinical conditions, accounting for sociocultural and individual factors;
3. Investigate and apply assessments, exercise prescription and programming for recovery or management of complex clinical conditions relevant to the scope of practice of an Accredited Exercise Physiologist;
4. Critique case-based treatment plans, considering priorities of comorbidity, associated medical, surgical and allied health treatments, referral and assessment information, individual context and scientific evidence;
5. Develop strategies to teach, coach and motivate clients for self-management of exercise and healthy lifestyle, using biopsychosocial framework, behaviour change, and evidence-based practice; and
6. Formulate sound clinical reasoning and decision making informed by evidence-based practice and client-centred care.

For some topics, there will be several key papers that are required readings as part of the core online learning modules. These will be clearly identified for students in the learning module.
Other provided readings will be optional for students, and have been made available as additional resources for students to support their individual learning needs and/or interests.
Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Assessments 1 and 2 are individual assessments, and will receive individual marks. Assessment 2 requires the students to work in a pair when recording their client handover, but they receive their own mark for this assessment and each student must submit their own recording and documentation.
Assessment 3 can be done as a pair, and students are encouraged to work in pairs for this. Students who work in pairs will receive the same mark for this assessment as a whole. Both students must submit a copy of the assessment to their Canvas drop box.
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Students are strongly encouraged to attend the on-campus workshops and tutorials each week to optimise success in completing the unit as well as to ensure appropriate preparation leading into their clinical placements. This unit is designed to be delivered in person and cannot be undertaken solely online.
The timetable for this unit has been developed in conjunction with the other core units in this semester for the Bachelor of Exercise Physiology and Rehabilition. Students need to enrol in complimentary workshops and tutorials so that there are no clashes across their core units of study.
Where available, workshops and tutorials will be recorded to enable students who are sick/symptomatic or have a critical reason to miss specific classes, to access the information from discussions and learning activities covered that week.
Required IT skills
Students will need to video record one of their assessment items, and save/submit this as a video file or shared file link (e.g. One Drive).
Students can make use of exercise prescription and programming software for their Assessment 3 requirements.
