Module Title:Advanced Rehabilitation and Performance Programming 2
Language of Instruction:English
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:8
Module Delivered In 1 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: This module will be taught in one hour theory class and a double hour practical per week. The theory class will include active learning, flipped learning, group discussion and lecture content. The primary focus will be on developing students’ knowledge and understanding key elements of the late stage rehabilitation and return to performance planning. The practical work will comprise of a mix of experiential learning, discussion, demonstration and flipped learning to develop the various performance-related components of strength and conditioning and critically evaluate the return to performance criteria for specific injuries. There will be a specific focus on developing and designing strength and conditioning programme's for those athletes/ patients that are injured and/ or returning from injury criteria.
Module Aim: This module provides an in-depth skills in the exercise based rehabilitation, which will include complex factors effecting performance and recovery, monitoring of athletes and clients, performance enhancement and advanced exercise late stage rehabilitation and return to performance criteria.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to:
LO1 Demonstrate the scientific principles underpinning the components of strength and conditoning in end stage rehab through competent practical demonstration and coaching.
LO2 Critically analyse and appraise the various strength and conditioning training methods in training a patient/athete returning from injury and preparing for re-introduction to performance settings.
LO3 Demonstrate and critically analyse the late stage rehabilitation phase and return to performance criteria for specific injuries
