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 Discussion at industry sites and Zoom sessions

Feedback

It was good that the number of discussion forums was cut back. The Zoom sessions were seen as beneficial and students voiced their opinion that they would like to see more of the Unit Coordinator in Zoom sessions.

Recommendation

In 2019 the discussion forums were cut back as requested by students as they had felt pressured to attend when they had a number of other competing demands. To address this the recorded Zoom sessions were increased to fortnightly to facilitate engagement with students and minimise their stress. Maintain regular (fortnightly) contact with discussion postings.

Feedback from Discussion at partnered industry sites.

Feedback

Students suggested that the portfolio was 'hard work' although they recognised the need for an eportfolio.

Recommendation

Recommended that students document their experiences as they happen, while they are still fresh in their memory to prevent the stress arising from completing the entire portfolio at the end of term.

1 Reflective Practice Assignment

Assessment Title
Reflective Practice Assignment

Task Description

Type: Written assessment

Due date: 5 pm (AEST) Wednesday 30th March 2022 (Week 4)

Weighting: Pass/Fail

Length: 2000 words +/- 10%

Aim:

The aim of this assessment is to provide you with an opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and skills in providing ethical and legal nursing care in your area of specialty.

Instructions

Use the Gibbs’ Reflective Model (1988) to reflect on the ethical, legal, and nursing practice implications brought about by recent changes to infection control policies associated with COVID, in your area of clinical specialty. Your reflection needs to highlight the changes to infection control policies and how these impact your patients/clients and your delivery of nursing care.

Gibbs’ steps to reflective practice are:

  • Description – What happened (infection control change and impact)?
  • Feelings – What are you thinking or feeling about this?
  • Evaluation – What is good and what is bad about the change?
  • Analysis - What have you learnt from this experience?
  • Conclusion – What could you have done differently?
  • Action – If you faced this situation again, how would you act differently (Gibbs, 1988)

Before you begin writing, follow these guidelines to help you prepare the reflection:

Step 1. Review the situation/incident thoroughly

    • Take notes, highlight relevant facts, and review relevant literature inclusive of - change in policy, ethical and legal implications of this change, change in nursing care process, impact on client/patient

Step 2. Focus your analysis

    • Identify the area/specialty in which you work – please do not identify institutions i.e., specific hospitals.
    • Identify the change in infection control policy associated with COVID-19.
    • Why did this change occur?
    • What were the legal and ethical considerations related to care?
    • How did the change in infection control impact the patient?
    • How did the change in infection control impact the delivery of your nursing care?
    • Who is responsible for ensuring that you are properly resourced to accommodate the change and why do you need to know this person?
    • Did the subsequent care delivered meet the standards of best practice?

Step 3. Uncover possible improvements to nursing practice

    • Review unit readings, discussions, outside research, your experience.

Step 4. Select the best solution

    • Consider strong supporting evidence, pros, and cons: was this care provided at a gold stand level?
    • What would you do in the future faced with this change in infection control?

Literature and references:

In this assessment use at least 12 contemporary references (<10 years) to support your discussion. You may also use seminal scholarly literature where relevant. Suitable references include peer-reviewed journal articles as well as textbooks and credible websites. When sourcing information, consider the five elements of a quality reference: currency, authority, relevance, objectivity, and coverage. Grey literature sourced from the internet must be from reputable websites such as from government, university, or peak national bodies: for example, the Australian College of Nursing.

Requirements:

1. Use a conventional and legible size 12 font, such as Calibri or Times New Roman, with 1.5 line spacing and 2.54cm page margins (standard pre-set margin in Microsoft Word).

2. Include page numbers on each page in a footer

3. Include an introduction and conclusion

4. Write predominantly in the third-person perspective and use first person where appropriate.

5. Use formal academic language.

6. Use the seventh edition American Psychological Association (APA) referencing style. The CQUniversity Academic Learning Centre has an online APA Referencing Style Guide.

7. References must be used to support the reflection on the ethical and legal implications as well as the identified decisions and actions taken.

8. The word count is considered from the first word of the introduction to the last word of the conclusion. The word count excludes the reference list but includes in-text references and direct quotations.

Resources:

9. Decision-making framework (DMF) (NMBA, 2020)

10. Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) registered nurse standards for practice (2016).

12. Patient Safety Competency Framework for Nursing Students (PSCF) (Levett-Jones et al., 2017)

13. You can use unit provided materials and other credible sources (e.g. journal articles, books) to reference your argument. The quality and credibility of your sources are important.

14. We recommend that you access your discipline specific Nursing Resource Guide

15. You may like to manage your citations and reference list. Information on how to use academic referencing software (EndNote) is available at the CQUniversity Library website should you wish to learn how to use it.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
