This is the second and final placement unit within the Master of Clinical Exercise Science and Rehabilitation. Students integrate new information and understanding to knowledge, skills and experiences acquired to date, in order to plan and implement a client-centred capstone experience.
Students will critically appraise, interpret, and disseminate research information to various audiences in a process considered an example of best practice for the Accredited Exercise Physiologist (AEP) context. Subsequently, students apply this evidence-based approach to complex case studies examining issues relevant to AEP advanced case management and practice, including concerns relating to multiple comorbidities, client transitions through the rehabilitation process, and ethics and diversity. Students will then critically analyse, reflect on and synthesise their own individual placement experience through an advanced case report portfolio. In the clinical practice project, students will demonstrate their understanding and application of the proper management of ethical dilemmas, health and wellness coaching concepts, and best practice principles with the incorporation of the interprofessional model of care. By the end of this unit, students will be able to utilise evidence-based best practice and navigate interprofessional practice with autonomy and confidence, and be fully prepared for employment as an AEP.
