General Information

Overview

This is the fourth and final Imaging Procedures unit in the course. There are two main areas of focus for the unit - adaptation radiography and fluoroscopic procedures. You will build on your knowledge and skills from prior theory units and clinical placements and further develop your problem-solving skills in the planning and execution of imaging procedures on complex patients and in complex environments such as theatre, casualty and wards. A range of fluoroscopic procedures will be discussed with respect to goals, technique, environments and the radiographer's role. You will examine the critical contribution of interpersonal skills such as effective communication and teamwork to the radiographer's ability to perform effectively and efficiently in these procedure areas.

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 Unit Coordinator & Site Supervisor reflection

Feedback

Students displayed competence and preparedness for clinical placement in the assessed areas of complex scenarios, such as mobile and trauma x-ray imaging, but required more preparation in the adaptive techniques used in the imaging of ambulant and 'walking wounded' patients for routine x-rays.

Recommendation

To enhance student preparedness for clinical placement, investigate the potential of expanding the number and type of performance assessments to include solo performance adaptation of a radiographic examination for a simulated patient with some complexity in presentation.

Feedback from Unit Coordinator and Team reflection

Feedback

The graded complex scenario practical assessment involving teamwork skills was performed to an extremely high standard, which is to be expected of students nearing the end of their 3rd year of medical imaging study. As a graded assessment, this may have distorted students' overall grades.

Recommendation

Investigate changing the graded complex scenario practical assessment to a pass/fail assessment.
