The focus of this course is on special populations and their specific needs for engaging in physical activity (e.g. specific limitations, special considerations, individualisation of the testing and training procedures). The course will examine the literature regarding the impact of physical activity on the health status of a number of special populations. Example of topics include cancer, corporate health, menopause, pregnancy, sleep, mental health, indigenous health, chronic kidney disease, children, and gestational diabetes. This course offers a mixture of traditional and interactive/case study approaches to learning. Lectures will build on material presented in HESC3504 (Physical Activity and Health) and HESC3541 (Clinical Exercise Physiology) and in-depth knowledge on specific populations will be provided.
This course is restricted to students enrolled in the Bachelor of Exercise Physiology 3871.
