Course context
This is a preliminary topic in the Master of Clinical Exercise Physiology. The topic will give students an overview of different approaches to screening, assessment and interventions in clinical exercise practice. Students will explore the evidence and examine individual case-based approaches to exercise prescription as means of managing a variety of conditions prior to undertaking clinical placement in different areas of exercise physiology practice.

Topic description
In this topic, students will learn how to interpret and use referral information. Students will conduct health and exercise-related screening, assessments and interventions in core areas of clinical exercise physiology (CEP) practice including cardiorespiratory rehabilitation; chronic disease management; healthy ageing/aged care; injury management and occupational rehabilitation.

Students will apply evidence-based approaches to appropriately select, modify and administer a range of general and population-specific health and exercise assessments and interventions within a clinical context.

The pathological and pathophysiological bases of core areas of CEP practice will be examined. This includes the interactions between exercise and acute, subacute and chronic conditions and implications for safe and effective exercise prescription and monitoring.

Emphasis will be placed on the demonstration of critical thinking, evidence-based decision-making, and professional clinical practice.
