Content
This unit is designed to provide students with foundation knowledge of the causal mechanisms of injury and dysfunction, commonly encountered in athletic and occupational environments. It focuses on the skill set required to assess, prepare and implement exercise programs to optimise function, prevent injury and to rehabilitate beyond primary care interventions and treatments.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) demonstrate an ability to conduct appropriate and safe client assessments, and to interpret and communicate the relevant information; (2) apply the principles of motor control, exercise physiology, functional anatomy and biomechanics to prescribe and deliver appropriate exercise interventions; (3) demonstrate an ability to evaluate, understand and communicate key clinical information and research evidence; and (4) identify potential adverse responses during rehabilitation, and the appropriate reporting to referrers.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) practical examination; (2) theory examination; and (3) professional communication assessment. Further information is available in the unit outline.

To pass this unit, a student must: (a) achieve an overall mark of 50 per cent or higher for the unit; and (b) achieve the requisite requirements(s) or a mark of 50 per cent or greater, whichever is higher and specified in the unit outline, for the practical examination component.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
