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 rehabilitation beyond primary care interventions and treatment.
Outcomes
Students are able to (1) demonstrate an ability to conduct appropriate and safe client assessment, 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) understanding and identify potential adverse responses during rehabilitation, and the appropriate reporting to referrers.
Assessment
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) practical examination and (2) theory examinations. 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 available in this unit for those students who obtain a mark of at least 45 overall provided they have also obtained a mark of at least 45 in a specified component of the unit.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Unit readings, including any essential textbooks, are listed in the unit outline for each unit, one week prior the commencement of study. The unit outline will be available via the LMS and the UWA Handbook one week prior the commencement of study. Reading lists and essential textbooks are subject to change each semester. Information on essential textbooks will also be made available on the Essential Textbooks. This website is updated regularly in the lead up to semester so content may change. It is recommended that students purchase essential textbooks for convenience due to the frequency with which they will be required during the unit. A limited number of textbooks will be made available from the Library in print and will also be made available online wherever possible. Essential textbooks can be purchased from the commercial vendors to secure the best deal. The Student Guild can provide assistance on where to purchase books if required. Books can be purchased second hand at the Guild Secondhand bookshop (second floor, Guild Village), which is located on campus.
