Length: 2500 words maximum Submission method options EASTS (online) Task For this assessment you are required to analyse a client case study and demonstrate your capacity for pre-exercise planning to determine client needs (providing fictional data for the client where required) and design an evidence based exercise intervention to enhance improve physical capacity, functional ability, health outcomes, and/or quality of life. To do this you need to complete the following tasks: Part A: Pre-Exercise Planning Provide a brief summary/overview of the client’s case and discuss implications for health status. Develop an initial consultation procedure to obtain pertinant client information and provide realistic fictional data for those parameters not described in the client’s case file. Perform an exercise pre-screen and stratisfy the client’s risk for experiencing exercise-induced complications. Based on the information contained in the client’s case file and that obtained through initial consultation, design an approach for assessing exercise capacity and/or health-related firness components. Realistic fictional data for your client should be provided Establish three short-term (3) goals for exercise as they relate to results obtained from exercise testing. Part B: Exercise Intervention Using the information in Part A, develop a safe and effective 8-week exercise intervention that aims to achieve the client’s goals and improve their health status. Strategies to enhance exercise adherence and compliance should also be included. Further information about this assessment is provided in the marking criteria below. Rationale This assessment item will evaluate your standard of achievement of learning outcomes 2, 3, 4, 6, and/or 9. Marking criteria This assessment will be marked against the following components based on completeness, depth of analysis, strength of justifications, evidence of the application of theory to practice, creativity, and evidence of critical and original throught: Part A: Pre-Exercise Planning Brief summary/ overview of case (5 marks): Demonstrates knowledge and comprehension of the pathophysiology of the condition/s. Demonstrates an understanding of the effect of the condition/s on health status and functional ability. Arguments are supported using relevant evidence-based literature. Initial Consultation(10 marks): A clear and concise justification related to AEP service provision and/or implications for client health outcomes is provided for each parameter included that demonstrates the application of theory to practice. The identification of all relevant content from the case study documents (i.e. background information and health summary data) required for determining client needs for safe and effective exercise prescription is accurate and complete. Where appropriate, relevant content from the case study documents (i.e. background information and health summary data) is classified and/or interpreted relative to criterion standards, normal values, and/or optimal goals/targets. Identifies critical questions related to key parameters that will help to elicit all of the information regarding the client’s condition that will influence the development of appropriate exercises goals and interventions. Arguments are supported using relevant evidence-based literature. Risk Assessment and Stratification (5 marks): Demonstrates knowledge and comprehension of the application of the ESSA Adult Pre-Exercise Screening tool in a clinical setting. Demonstrates ability to use the tool to identify all risk factors for adverse cardiovascular events associated with exercise. Discusses the limitations of the ESSA screening tool when working with complex clients and/or those with multiple risk factors. Demonstrates professional judgement regarding the determination of safe exercise intensity limits for the client after considering case study documentation and risk stratification from screening. Arguments are supported using relevant evidence-based literature. Approach to Exercise Assessment (10 marks): Initial exercise tests are appropriate to be performed by the client based on their current conditions and likely physical capacity. Initial exercise tests will contribute to further characterising the client’s chief complaint/s and/or the impact of the disease/s on exercise capacity and parameters of health-related fitness. A persuasive, clear and concise, justification for the inclusion of each test is provided. A fictionalised dataset for each exercise test is provided for the client and the results are accurately interpretation using professional standards and/or criteria. Arguments are supported using relevant evidence-based literature. Client Goals (5 marks): Three (3) goals developed are informed through the results from exercise testing and directly support the improvement of client health and/or functional status. The value of each goal relative to their capacity to enhance client health and/or functional status are compared, evaluated and prioritised in order of most important to least important. Arguments are supported using relevant evidence-based literature. Part B: Exercise Intervention (15 marks) The design of the 8-week exercise program is developed based on client needs and provides a solid initial platform to work towards achieving client’s goals and improving long-term health. The acute training variables (FITT) for each exercise session are clearly and concisely described, suitable for the client to perform given their current health status and functional capacity, and demonstrate appropriate application of theory practice. Exercise program includes a mix of home-based and clinic-based exercise sessions that utilise a wide of range equipment and resources that would be readily accessible in the respective exercise locations. Appropriate manipulation of the training variables is provided to apply progression. A persuasive, clear and concise justification for the program developed is provided that discusses risk factors, safety considerations, compliance issues, potential benefits for the client, exercise response monitoring, and/or other relevant issues influencing program development is provided. Arguments are supported using relevant evidence-based literature. Academic Literacy (3 marks) Minimal expression, spelling and/or grammatical errors in text writing. Written expression does not distract the reader or impair understanding of content. A minimum of 10 references are included (all from peer-reviewed sources). Minimal referencing errors in-text and/or in the reference list. The reader trusts the accuracy of the material presented and the accuracy, validity and/or reliability of sources used. Document is double-spaced, 10-point Arial or times New Roman font. Requirements This assessment should be submitted via EASTS using the template provided in Interact2. It is expected that a minimum of 10 references from a range of sources (i.e. textbooks and journals) will be used to complete this assessment item. Websites are NOT permitted. All references should be cited in text and in the reference list according to the APA referencing system.
