General Information

Overview

During this clinical unit you will apply and expand on knowledge and skills previously learned both on campus and during your previous placements.You will further develop your clinical skills in general radiography to include adaptation to a range of patient types and imaging environments. You will develop clinical skills in computed tomography and theatre fluoroscopy. You will further develop your decision-making skills and use your knowledge of image evaluation to assess images from a wide range of procedures for technical sufficiency. You will use reflective practice to assist in your development as an imaging professional. At all times you will work within the profession's Code of Conduct and your scope of practice.

Pre-requisites: MEDI13001 Science and Instrumentation 3, and MEDI13002 Imaging Procedures 3, which must have been successfully completed within the last twelve months. If this twelve month period has been exceeded, the student must undergo a formal refresher of technical and professional skills. MEDI13004 Medical Imaging Clinical Course 2 and Co-Requisites: MEDI13006 Imaging Procedures 4. If the student has completed MEDI13006 more than twelve months prior to commencing MEDI13005, the student must undergo a formal refresher of technical and professional skills.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Student Survey & Unit Coordinator reflection

Feedback

The timing for student assessment items varied greatly for each student due to the impact of COVID-19 and therefore the students' 11-week clinical placements were spread over a 7-month period, with some students' placements split into two separate blocks occurring over the 7-month period. This impacted the use of forum posting and emailed global friendly reminders to students of the assessment due dates. This is in addition to clear posted statements throughout the Moodle site of due dates relative to placement weeks.

Recommendation

Encourage students to use the unit profile's weekly schedule for assessment due date listings relative to placement weeks.

Feedback from Site supervisor feedback

Feedback

The Global Assessment of Professional Attributes (GAPA) assessment tool is an excellent holistic representation of the behaviours required of a medical imaging student during their clinical placements.

Recommendation

Continue to maintain the use of the GAPA assessment tool at regular intervals during the clinical placement unit, providing the student with accurate and on-going feedback on their professional performance.
