A2. Assess the (dis)abilities, risk factors, needs and potential of the patient / client.

A2.1. Understand the condition of the patients / clients and its consequences in terms of functional (dis)abilities, health conditions, etc... A2.2. Understand clinical investigation data (e.g. X-rays, gait analyses, cardiorespiratory tests) and the conclusions and recommendations of rehabilitation specialists. A2.3. Assess the patient’s / client’s current and potential level of functioning. A2.4. Understand the patient’s / client’s response to physical activity; identify and remediate potential contraindications, health risks and risk factors.

B. Education & Information

B1. Educate patients / clients about their (dis)abilities and potential through physical activity.

B1.1. Educate the patient / client about his/her functional (dis)abilities, response to exercise, potential health risks, risk factors and contraindications with regards to physical activity. B1.2 Educate the patient / client about the recognition and remediation of symptoms that potentially lead to health risks, injuries, etc... B1.3. Educate patients / clients about the APA programme and its benefits during rehabilitation.

B2. Provide the appropriate information to guarantee a continuation of an active lifestyle

B2.1. Inform the patient / client about community based physical activity programmes, and the short and long term benefits of physical activity. B2.2. Provide a database with information regarding companies and community based

post rehabilitation. organisations to ensure a continuation of an active life style post rehabilitation.

B2.3. Provide information regarding legislation about possible benefits from national, regional and local governing bodies with respect to physical activity and sports post rehabilitation.
