· recognize the need to build personal services, based on the concepts of function and homeostatic reserves;
· identify the biological activity and mechanisms of action of hormones, with particular regard to the effects on the musculoskeletal system;
· describe the effects of physical activity on hormonal secretion;
· know the main endocrinological and metabolic pathologies (thyroid pathologies, pituitary, parathyroid, adrenal gland, diabetes, osteoporosis;
· know how to define which rehabilitation path is most suitable for the patient after an acute event, with particular reference to the outcome of stroke, based on the specific clinical conditions;
· acquire knowledge about the history of the evolution of the training of Health Professions;

·low vision and visual rehabilitation both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. Low vision is in fact becoming an increasingly frequent social and health problem in all age groups due to the aging of the population and the improvement of treatments that often allow a partial saving of the visual function avoiding the state of blindness. During the course the classification, legislative and diagnostic criteria relating to low vision and blindness will be examined. These criteria represent the basis for the creation of personalized rehabilitation programs that can allow the best use of the residual visual function in order to introduce the use of optical, postural, electronic and IT lighting techniques;
