The Rehabilitation Science program is for physiotherapists, exercise scientists, occupational therapists, nurses and other qualified allied health professionals, who want to become experts in rehabilitation and health promotion to help rehabilitate people recovering from injury and illness.
The emphasis in this course is on promoting contemporary best practice rehabilitation in multiple clinical and community contexts in both national and global settings. This course will build on your knowledge and skills to identify and analyse the multiple determinants of health that influence wellbeing, and to design and implement rehabilitation strategies in a holistic, person-centered manner at both an individual and group level.
You will learn about the principles of rehabilitation and habilitation, the physiology of fitness and conditioning and the use of evidence informed clinical decision-making. Specifically, you will learn techniques including exercise prescription, goal setting, measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviours and fitness evaluation.
