Teaching & Learning

 

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic we are currently unable to advise on the mode of teaching for September 2021, however we will keep you updated and provide more information as soon as we can. We continue to follow government guidance and your teaching and learning will reflect the restrictions in place at the time of delivery. We currently anticipate that you may experience a blended approach – this is a mix of face-to-face, on campus and online teaching and learning. You can keep up to date with teaching and learning at Leeds Beckett via our Covid-19 website. Updated course specifications will be available in August 2021. In the meantime, our existing course specifications are available.

What you'll learn

This module will incorporate your training and assessment in current sports trauma management techniques utilised by health professionals.
Explore specific aspects of the structure and function of the neuromuscular system and their relationship with intrinsic and extrinsic factors. The module provides you with an understanding of the mechanical basis of joint and muscle function, as well as developing an understanding of the relationship between external and internal loading factors which can lead to injury.
Consider the evidence basis for advanced exercise testing and prescription methods. You will discuss contemporary technological advancements and their application to sports physiology with the aim to enhance elite performance.
Incorporate a theoretical and practical approach which will develop your comprehensive understanding of injury management. You will explore key underpinning knowledge, skills and evidence for rehabilitation strategies for athletic populations. You will also critically review treatment strategies for conservative and surgical options inclusive of specific controlled conditions.
Develop your clinical reasoning skills in the assessment of sports injuries, complex clinical presentations and pathophysiology. Under the module you will also enhance your skills in critical thinking, analysis and reflection. The understanding and application of current models of clinical reasoning allows the you to develop your present and future practice.
Gain a detailed and critical understanding of the application of cardiopulmonary exercise testing and exercise prescription in populations with cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions. You will focus on the use of interpretative algorithms for the cardiopulmonary test data. You will also engage in a fairly intensive introduction to electrocardiography as well as survival statistics as they are used in clinical exercise physiology research.
