Here's one of to start the day tomorrow.

Describe the responsibility for health services and facilities. (4)
ANSWERS
1. B- Creatine- my mistake
2. B - Irrideology- I have no idea what it is. Just a process of elimination

I am actually screwed for multiple choice I have an average of getting 15/20.


The government is responsible for Medicare which includes bulk billing where the cost of visiting the GP is not passed on to the patient with no out of pocket expenses. The federal government maintains the Pharmacutical Benifit Scheme where some life saving drugs are subsidised by 80% to all Australian citizens. And the PBS Safety Net which provides a maximum yearly cost on prescription on medication for invidividuals and families. The maximum cost is $111.60 and anything after that is further subsidised by the government making health care treatment economical. The state government is responsible for all public hospitals which includes providing the emergency rooms, meals and patient transport. The government takes responsibility in health campaigns such as Healthy Canteens and National Tabaco Scheme. The local council has responsibility to enforce legislation, providing family and children services and running organisations such as Meals on Wheels. Finally, the individual has a responsibility in taking care of themselves which is supported by mandatory PDHPE lessons at school from K-10 giving the individual the knowledge to take responsibility.

I hope something like this is in our exam....but don't get it confused with "Level of responsibility for health promotion"

Yeah, I my multiple choice always brings me down. My worst section averaging roughly 15/6.

Btw, they won't ask the responsibility of governments this idea so it narrows it down since they asked it last year.

For you answer you can additionally talk about the roles of the community --> They address local needs and provision of information and knowledge

Outline the levels of responsibility for health promotion. (4)
An intersectoral collaboration between all levels is imperative in ensuring an effective health promotion. Responsibilities are shared between federal, state, local, private and the individual.

Federal: The top levels of government provide cohesion, and encourage the states and territories to establish strong health promotion infrastructure.

State and territories: Deliver the health promotion preventative measures by allocating funding to certain areas, establishing healthy public policy and meeting with other levels of government.

Local: To provide relevant services to the local citizens by developing partnerships and creating supportive and safe environments and notifying the local citizens of upcoming health related events.

Private: Whether working for a profit or not, private health promotion initiatives aim to increase the nations health status by providing goods, services and a healthy environment.

Individual: All information and services are provided to the individual, they just need to make best use of those provided by seeking information, supporting friends and family and participating in community events.

A coach will use objective and subjective to appraise different sports.

Objective means there is no room for interpretation as the results are accurate and precise. This can be measured through sensored walls in swimming pools to time when the athlete completed the race. It can be in the form of stopwatches for marathons, triathlons and sprints. As well as tape measures to measure the distance of a long jump or shot put. And additionally an umpire will supervise a netball game picking up errors, along with a score keeper.

However the umpire may misjudge a foul and the time keeper may miss a goal making it subjective. Subjective means there is room for interpretation and faults may arise. This is used in sports such as dancing, gymnastics and surfing where there will be emphasis on the complexity of the skill and points will be given. This is especially at elite levels where one point can determine who wins or loses however at more junior levels points will be given on appearance opposed to skill and technique.

A quick summary
Government: interprets epidemiology, allocates funding and creates legislation
State: is responsible for health promotion initiatives such as Walk it, Healthy Canteens at school
Local: looks after facilities for the health promotion to take place such as parks and beaches for Walk it
Individual: mandatory PDHPE lessons from k-10
Non- government organisations: cancer council researches cures and treatment etc.

The principles of training are key concepts to be considered whilst undertaking training of any sort. It embodies, specificity, progressive overload, reversibility, training thresh-holds, variety and warm-up and cool-down. Understanding these concepts are key towards the undertaking of aerobic training.

Specificity refers towards tailoring a program in which is specific towards the goal or sport the athlete is undertaking, essentially training the correct energy system. (e.g. long distance for aerobic athletes). Specificity within aerobic training would be considered as undertaking long-distance or continuous training methods in which stresses the athlete, pushing and maintain their heart-rate to be within 70-80%. Rests should be minimal to continual place the cardio-respiratory system under stress, developing the bodies ability to utilise oxygen efficiently, increase haemoglobin levels and venous flow, overall increasing the V02 max. (E.g. fartlek running, up and down hills at a constant pace). If specificity is undertaken and training consists of short distance running, it trains the wrong energy system and therefore not considered to be aerobic as oxygen is not present. (e.g. 20m sprints).

Progressive overload refers towards slowly pushing the body's comfort zones, allowing physiological adaptations to occur, increasing attributes such as endurance and stamina. Undertaking progressive overload within aerobic training requires slowly increasing variables such as the distance covered (e.g. 3kms to 4kms) and minimising the time taken to complete the run. However, making sure adaptations occur are key before increasing the intensity and duration as it can lead towards overtraining and fatigue. Undertaking aerobic interval and decreasing the time taken to run 800m overtime is an example of progressive overload within aerobic training.

Through specificity of aerobic programs and developing specific training programs in which stress the cardio-respiratory system is key towards improving the endurance of an athlete by correctly training the energy system involved. Progressive overload can further be linked to aerobic training by slowly ramping up the intensity whilst decreasing the duration to develop the aerobic energy system whilst undertaking either continuous, fartlek, interval or circuit training.


Could possibly talk about warm-up and training thresholds but it's a really long response haha! Found it was awkwardish to tie in analyse. :(
Good response! However, you did waste a fair bit of lines that were not necessary and you could've used those for the other two principles! However, a great response 7/7

Here are some multiple choice from my trial.....

1. Which supplement is taken in the belief it will improve the recovery rate of the ATP PC energy system?
A. Caffeine
B. Creatine
C. Protein
D. Vitamins and minerals


2. Which of the following services would be considered an example of alternate health care approaches?
A. Variety
B. Iridology
C. Chemotherapy
D. Orthodontics

I'm off for the night.
B and B. Ryan is right caffeine and glycogen sparing have no benefit to the ATP/PC system through its source of fuel as creatine phosphate!

Government: Allocate funding towards lower levels of government, set benchmarks for health promotion initiatives, monitor the effectiveness of programs, create and establish legislation
State: Disseminate the program, install health services such as hospitals or any health service with medical practitioners (institutional and non-institutional)
Local: maintain and enforce sanitary and hygienic practices, overall care of facilities
NGOs: Promote awareness (cancer council)
Community: Target and allocate towards local needs within the community, provide information and specifics

Hey could someone differentiate between the responsibility of health services and facilities (FQ3) and the responsibility for health promotion?
Wouldn't there be a ton of overlapping ideas in which would be correct meaning you can get away with information regarding FQ3 dot point when they ask about FQ4 dot point?
Aside from the fact that responsibility has the private sector whilst health promotion contains NGOs...

Oxygen uptake increases with performance right?
