As the prescription of exercise in clinical exercise physiology is a major contributor to health and well-being, the syllabus for this subject will develop the student's capacity to administer and interpret tests of exercise capacity and functional status of clients within clinical exercise physiology target pathologies including cardiorespiratory, metabolic, musculoskeletal and neurological conditions; and design appropriate exercise prescription to meet the goals and underlying pathology of the condition. Students will review and interpret the literature to construct, apply and justify the inclusion of clinical exercise assessment modalities for the target pathologies; categorise clients into acute, subacute, chronic, stable and unstable groupings and stratify clients into risk categories of exercise participation and apply knowledge of the physiological aspects of clinical assessment and exercise prescription in rehabilitation, by demonstrating professional competencies related to the field of clinical exercise physiology. At the completion of this subject, students will be able to interpret tests of fitness and functional capacities; describe modes, intensities and volumes of exercise that are contraindicated for clients with target pathologies; and design, implement, modify and progress exercise programs clients with target pathologies.
