General Information

Overview

In your final year of study, you are transitioning from student to independent practitioner. Nearing completion of your tertiary studies to begin a career in your selected profession is a huge learning milestone. This transition phase of your learning journey is also a starting point for another learning journey, i.e. your continuing development as a professional. To support your transition, this unit focuses on the development of your clinical decision making skills to work autonomously as a graduate practitioner as well as your preparation for seeking employment as a newly qualified radiographer. You will apply concepts and processes of facility accreditation, quality improvement, risk management, incident management, patient information systems and healthcare records to the analysis and discussion of clinical incidents and near misses. You will further develop your ability to contribute to the education of your peers in line with your professional registration requirements.

Feedback from Unit coordinator reflection

Feedback

Despite different levels of performance in the group and updating of the scoring guides and assessment tasks following the last delivery of the unit, the students still scored relatively high marks in the Case study assessment.

Recommendation

Review and alter the assessment tasks and related rubrics for the Case study assessment to ensure that they are at the appropriate levels of complexity in differentiating between performances against the set criteria in the future iteration of the unit.

Feedback from Medical Imaging team meeting Unit coordinator reflection

Feedback

The Portfolio assessment needs to be modified to address the new requirements for entry to practice set by the accrediting body, Medical Radiation Practitioners Board of Australia (MRPBA).

Recommendation

Amend the assessment tasks for the Portfolio assessment to address the new requirements for entry to practice set by the accrediting body, Medical Radiation Practice Board of Australia (MRPBA).

Feedback from Have your say student evaluation

Feedback

Students felt that the unit supported them in preparing for graduate job interviews and helped them in further building up their CV for a graduate radiographer role.

Recommendation

Adapt the current unit content with further enhancement to job preparation and application where needed in future iterations of the unit so that students are better supported in their preparation and transition into the workforce.
