General Information

Overview

In this unit you will gain theoretical knowledge in periodontal and dental hygiene diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment procedures. You will translate and integrate knowledge and skills learnt throughout the Bachelor of Oral Health course through work-integrated learning clinical practice. You must comply with clinical policies and procedures while undertaking clinical practice. You will improve your clinical reasoning skills in a supportive environment aimed to increase your confidence through reflective and self-directed learning. On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to demonstrate clinical judgment and practical skills in oral examination and diagnosis of dental conditions in adults of all ages. You will also be able to demonstrate safety and competence in patient care over a range of periodontal and dental hygiene clinical procedures, including referral of patients for complex care outside your scope of practice. You will be able to communicate information regarding oral health in oral and written forms utilising appropriate interpersonal and team communication skills, professional attitudes and ethical behaviours. You will be required to attend a two-week compulsory intensive program immediately prior to the commencement of Term 1.

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 Feedback via the "Have Your Say" survey.

Feedback

One student suggested having lectures at the beginning of the week, prior to clinical and pre-clinical sessions, to enable discussions with the lecturer.

Recommendation

The timetable is determined by staff availability. Therefore it is not possible to have lectures on a Monday. However content will continue to be covered prior to practice in the clinical or pre-clinical environment. Clinical and pre-clinical content is provided via workbooks and Moodle and discussions with the clinical educators also occurs in the sessions.

Feedback from Student Feedback via the "Have Your Say" survey.

Feedback

Students appreciate the weekly case studies.

Recommendation

It is recommended that case studies continue in future cohorts.

2 Reflective Practice Assignment

Assessment Title
Personal Reflective Blog

Task Description

The clinical experiences in ORAL12003 are to consolidate, apply and extend the theory learnt in lectures and practical sessions during year 1 and 2 of the course.

Self-reflection is an important practice for personal and professional development. You will be required to write a self-reflective blog based on your practical experiences. Weekly reflections are to be recorded on a personalised blog on ORAL12003 Moodle. The purpose of the personal blog is to record your self - reflection of clinical placements on a weekly basis.

The Gibbs’ Reflective Cycle is an example of a reflective model you could use.

The completion of the personal reflective blog is a compulsory assessment and must be completed to a satisfactory standard. Templates are provided in the clinical workbook for you to make notes for the blog post. Reflections must be submitted by midnight each Sunday for the previous week you are in clinic.

Moreover, a student must pass this assessment item in order to pass the unit overall. The weighting allocated for this assessment item is a PASS/FAIL.

3 Practical Assessment

Assessment Title
Clinical Practice Assessment

Task Description

Clinical Sessions:

There are two 3 hours clinical sessions per week.

Weeks 1-7 consists of peer learning activities designed to consolidate, apply and extend the theory learnt in years 1 and 2 into clinical practice.

Weeks 8-11 consists of seeing patients for dental hygiene treatments.

Attendance at all clinical sessions is compulsory. Failure to provide a medical certificate to the unit coordinator for missed sessions will result in failure of this unit component.

All clinical sessions are graded by the supervisor using criterion-referenced assessment rubrics. Detailed rubrics are available, and a sample is below. Each mark contributes to an overall piece of pass/fail assessment. A pass grade is 60%.


Barrier Exam:

Students will undergo a barrier exam during the Friday clinical session in Week 7.

The barrier exam is an assessment of your basic hygiene clinical skills to ensure you are safe to commence treatment on patients from the general public.

It is mandatory to pass all components of this assessment to pass ORAL12003 overall. If you do not pass on your first sitting, you will be given a supplementary examination within a week. If you do not pass the supplementary examination, you will be unable to continue clinical practice in ORAL12003.

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.

What can you do to act with integrity?
