The six-minute walk test is a common outcome measure used in a variety of clinical populations to measure functional exercise capacity and evaluate the response to rehabilitation, medical, surgical and pharmacological interventions. Although published guidelines exist for the six-minute walk test, there is variability in test administration which can influence the results.

This course offers clinical researchers and clinicians a practical, skills-based, on-line course in administration of the six-minute walk test aimed at promoting and supporting best practices in clinical research and healthcare environments. During this online course, you will gain the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills required to administer the six-minute walk test in various clinical populations including cardiorespiratory, neurological and geriatric populations. Learning methods will include narrated lectures, videos and case studies with guiding questions for self-reflection, multiple choice quizzes, and asynchronous on-line discussion regarding key concepts.
