There is still much conjecture within New Zealand`s medical, clinical, and sporting environments related to the scope of practice of clinical exercise physiologists, exercise physiologists,
rehabilitation coaches and return-to-sport strength and conditioning coaches as part of the wider medical and athlete support teams. For this assessment, you must conduct an in-depth literature review contrasting and comparing the current trends in phases three to five (final phase) rehabilitation in New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom and South Africa. The literature review should also postulate how the different overseas models may serve as templates for developing and enhancing final-phase exercise rehabilitation in New Zealand. Final-phase rehabilitation includes:
Phase 3 - Activity-specific strength, conditioning, and skill acquisition
Phase 4 - Return to activity
Phase 5 - Injury prevention/pre-habilitation
It is important as a post-graduate student to showcase your academic writing skills, which you will use in the industry when communicating with other medical professionals. Communicating clearly developedideas and technical aspects is imperative to good multi-disciplinary practice and referral. Use peer-reviewed literature no older than ten years and information from the governing organizations within these countries to justify your answers where appropriate.
