C.A.S.E - Collaborative Approach to the Science of Exercise

C.A.S.E. is a brand new learning opportunity for our accredited exercise professionals to gain valuable experience across every aspect of the exercise intervention process. 

This 2-hour session will be facilitated by an Accredited Exercise Scientist, Accredited Exercise Physiologist and a Physiotherapist to allow participants to gain a diverse range of knowledge and expertise from each professional. 

These experts will showcase a client case study before fostering group discussion during the needs analysis and programming portions of the session. For you as an exercise professional, it is all about ensuring you prescribe every exercise with a purpose. 

C.A.S.E. will be unique in that it will provide you with the practical experience and real world examples in a gym setting that you can implement with your clients the very next day. 

We will also be providing you with a fantastic opportunity to collaborate with your peers that will provide a valuable platform to network and share experiences.

C.A.S.E will empower professionals by experiencing best practice communication and referral processes to allow you to thrive in a multidisciplinary landscape and provide the best outcomes for clients. 

This course will cover: 
• Best practice consultation and note taking
• Incoming and outgoing referral process
• Evidence based program development based on the individual needs of the client
• Practical experience prescribing and coaching exercise
• Group discussion to foster collaboration and networking

Presented by Mr Mitchell Finn, ESSAM, BExSci & Ms Alice Hyslop, Physiotherapist, ESSAM, AEP

Mr Mitchell Finn, ESSAM, BExSci
During Mitchell's career as an Exercise Scientist he has worked in a diverse range of roles across the scope of an ES. Throughout his undergraduate degree he worked in a commercial gym setting with general populations before spending 3 years as an intern with semi-professional sporting organisations. In his first major role as an Exercise Scientist he worked as a strength and conditioning coach with St Peters Lutheran College. This fostered a desire to inspire and educate youth and adolescents around the importance of exercise and training habits. During this time, he was also able to procure several different contracts in local sporting organisations to provide sports training and strength and conditioning services.

Following these positions, Mitch took a job managing a PCYC gym as it allowed him to continue to engage youth and train a wide range of people. He now also works at Exercise & Sports Science Australia (ESSA) to ensure that AES's have the resources and opportunities to be successful as well as a clearer vision of where to take the industry.

Ms Alice Hyslop, Physiotherapist, ESSAM, AEP

This multi-disciplinary environment has provided her with significant experience in all musculoskeletal conditions across the life span including sporting teams and chronic disease.

Alice has a specific interest in musculoskeletal conditions and clinical exercise prescription in the ageing adult. Her dual qualifications allow her to combine the effects of hands on treatment and exercise to give her patients optimal injury outcomes.
