Students completing this subject consolidate and advance their knowledge of anatomy and physiology of the cardiovascular, pulmonary, and respiratory systems, as well as develop clinical, epidemiological, pathophysiological, and pathomechanical knowledge of cardiopulmonary and respiratory conditions (e.g., coronary and peripheral arterial disease, pulmonary and cystic fibrosis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), asthma, and emphysema, etc.). Students expand their practical skills in clinical assessment, exercise selection, prescription, delivery, progression, monitoring, modification, and case management, by adopting evidenced-informed practice and applying scientific knowledge. In this subject, students prepare for their clinical placement, accreditation, and professional practice using critical thinking and clinical reasoning to deliver optimal outcomes within a person-centred approach.
