The purpose of this unit is to raise students' awareness of the specific issues of prevention, assessment, management of and recovery from sports injury. This unit aims to introduce students to the pathology, diagnosis and management of injuries commonly sustained during sporting activities. Students will also examine how the extent and intensity of sports participation relates to the incidence of sports injuries and explore a range of technical and scientific approaches for maintaining the wellbeing of athletes. The unit further aims to assist students in understanding their role and the role of various health professionals in recognising and managing sport related injuries.
