The curriculum offers students understanding of the disease processes; various treatments currently being applied (e.g. surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone therapy and immunotherapy), effects of cancer and treatment side-effects in terms of physical structure and function, development of other disease processes (e.g. metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, sarcopenia and osteoporosis), and the psychological impacts of the disease and treatments (e.g. anxiety, depression, fear of recurrence, self-care).
This course provides graduates with specialised knowledge and skills in the principles of health and fitness testing, exercise prescription development and program implementation, as well as understanding current best-practice in exercise medicine for cancer patients and survivors.
The two-week on-site practicum offers students the opportunity to apply theoretical concepts in targeted exercise for the management of cancer.
