2EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGYIntroductionThe current assignment focuses upon the role of the accredited exercise physiologists(AEPs). The scopes of practice governing such practices have been further entailed over here.The AEPs provide effective medical interventions catering to the health requirements of a vastmajority of population. The change implemented over here covers a comprehensive and holisticplan aimed at bringing about required lifestyle changes within an individual.The interventions are mostly in the form of daily care exercises with an emphasis onbringing about a positive behavioural change. Some of the targets pathological conditions lookedafter by the AEPs are cardiopulmonary diseases, metabolic disorders, muscuskelatal disorders,neurological disorders among others. The assignment provides a detailed overview about thescope of AEP practices which further helps in meeting the health requirements of the supportusers. Further, implementing the scope of practice helps in maintaining the affectivity of the careservices.Scope of practicesThe scope of practices can be further divided into a number of points as mentioned below:Screening, accessing and applying clinical reasoning for ensuring safety and affectivity ofimplemented physical interventionsThe AEP professionals need to screen the applied physical interventions in order toensure that the safety concerns of the support service users are effectively maintained. In thisrespect, a clinical reasoning cycle may be applied for planning and designing of the careinterventions. Theclinical reasoning cycleforms a very important evidence based tool for the
3EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGYeffective implementation of the AEP scope of practice. The clinical reasoning cycle may bedivided into the following components such as analysing the patient situation. As mentioned bySmartet al.(2016), such analysis helps in designing the effective care plan. Additionally,reviewing the current information of the patient along with gathering new and relevantinformation could be helpful. This further helps in expansion of the care plans and programmes.The process information helps in interpreting and relating to the effective interventions whichcould be implemented over here. The next step is the identification of the problem or issueswhich helps in focussing upon the definitive problem and arriving at a suitable alternative.One of the most important aspects is the designing of effective goals which helps inprovision of person centred approach to the support user. As commented bySoanet al.(2014),such measures places the patients at the centre of care and support services. Further selection ofthe action depends upon the availability of a majority of options and alternatives. Additionally,the outcomes need to be evaluated and reflected upon before implementing in the concernedscenario. This helps in planning of the suitable alternatives aimed towards the betterment of thesupport users. The AEP professional needs to undertake a screening process for implementingthe correct exercises as per the requirement of the support users. The screening activities whichneed to be performed before implanting the physical exercises include jotting down medicalhistory of the client. As commented byCheemaet al.(2014), inculcation of physical disabilitiesalong with noting down for the presence of psychosocial complications of the support users helpsin designing actual care plans meeting the care needs of the support users. Additionally,assessment of the competencies of the support users helps in designing the effective clinicalinterventions and physical exercises which can help in addressing the mobility issues of thesupport user. In this respect, accessing the functional competencies of the support users can help
4EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGYin planning suitable exercises for them. With respect to designing the care plan for fall patientscare has to be taken not to include extensive workout sessions within the daily activity sessionsof such people. Therefore, the care professional needs to inculcate light stretching exercises forrestoring the mobility within such people. Additionally, the support users may be provided withmotivational interview sessions in order to find out the different barriers and challenges faced forthe implementation of the care plan.Fig 1: clinical reasoning cycle(Source :Ledermanet al. 2016)
5EXERCISE PHYSIOLOGYAssessment of mobility patterns and standards of all individuals undertaking the clinicalinterventionsThe second criteria within the AEP scope of practise are the measurement of mobility ofthe support users availing the physiotherapy programs. For this purpose the AEP professionalscan use the movement screen app to screen and access the capacity of movement of the supportusers. The interventions are designed for use by exercise physiologists, fitness professionals andphysiotherapists. The app puts forward a well designed questionnaire which helps inunderstanding the current activity patterns of the care users. The currently approved world healthorganization disability scores (WHO DAS) to analyse the current physical health attributespossessed by the support users.The movement screening process helps in understanding the overall health riskspossessed by an individual. The evaluation undertaken over here helps in providing acomprehensive care structure to the patients. It helps in conducting an overall risk profilingwhich helps in highlighting the joint movements which are ore restricted compared to the others.A score may be recorded for each of the nine movements which helps in analysing the riskpatterns of an individual. As mentioned byLedermanet al.(2016) conducting such workshopshelps in understanding the concern areas of the support users. Additionally, inculcation ofeffective technologies where a virtual and interactive interface is provided to the patient can bebeneficial. The availability of such interfaces helps the fitness professionals to directly interactwith the client.On the contrary, as argued byNaumannet al.(2014), the success of the care plans andinterventions depends upon the amount of skills and knowledge possessed by the careprofessional. Thus, the skills possessed by the professionals could be enhanced by focussing
