This course will explore the use of evidence-based exercise interventions in the treatment and management of wide range of musculoskeletal pain conditions. The emphasis is on developing student competency with assessment and exercise prescription for chronic musculoskeletal conditions consistent with a biopsychosocial treatment approach. Considerable attention is given to developing clinical reasoning and skills and the translation of theoretical knowledge to clinical practice to prepare students for professional practice in musculoskeletal rehabilitation. This will be achieved through student centred teaching and learning modalities including simulated case study learning, clinical laboratories, flipped classrooms and online learning activities.  This course also provides students opportunity to further develop their knowledge and skills with musculoskeletal rehabilitation prior to commencing clinical practicum.   

This course is restricted to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Exercise Physiology 3871.
