- Lifespan of Athletes: participants should be able to demonstrate an understanding of important factors and relevant ‘not to be missed’ issues relevant to the different (youth, adolescent, female, pregnant and elderly) populations.
- Groin, Hip and Pelvis: participants should be able to demonstrate the ability to assess, differentially diagnose and plan for early management of common problems of the hip, groin and pelvis. Also participants should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the ‘not to be missed’ pathologies associated with the hip, groin and pelvis.
- Muscle injuries: participants should be able to demonstrate an understanding of management of acute muscle injuries and also an understanding of evidence based principles of rehabilitation and prevention of risk of further injury.
- Tendon: Participants should be able to demonstrate an understanding of the tendon pathology continuum and the appropriate physiotherapy and pharmacological management of tendons throughout this continuum and applied to a variety of sporting situations.
- Foot injuries: Participants should be able to demonstrate knowledge of common foot injuries in the athlete, along with appropriate subjective examination findings, objective tests and management for these conditions.
- Shoulder: Participants should be able to demonstrate knowledge of presenting patterns for shoulder pathologies in the sporting populations. In addition, they should demonstrate knowledge of testing to confirm these diagnoses and appropriate soft tissue and rehabilitation models. They should also be able to demonstrate knowledge of rehabilitation principles following common shoulder surgeries.
- Case studies: Participants should have a greater understanding of how to apply clinical reasoning to sports injuries taking into account the context for these injuries such as age, gender, sport, biomechanical considerations and other considerations.
- Wrist and Hand: Participants should be able to demonstrate an understanding assessment and treatment of common wrist and hand conditions in the sporting population, including particular focus on conditions which require specific and semi-urgent or urgent management.
- Advanced knee assessment and rehabilitation: participants should demonstrate an understanding of subjective and objective features of common acute and overuse knee injuries. Principles of rehabilitation of these conditions should be demonstrated.
- Elbow: Participants should demonstrate understanding of common sporting elbow conditions. Relationship of these conditions within the kinetic chain should be appreciated.
