General Information

Overview

This unit, which is a sequel to ORAL12002 Oral Health Pre-Clinical Practice 1, reinforces skills learnt previously as well as developing new restorative skills and techniques in the primary dentition. You will apply knowledge and demonstrate skills in the preventive and operative management of dental caries including extractions, pulpotomies, stainless steel crowns and strip crowns in the primary dentition. On completion of this unit, you will demonstrate proficiency in the administration of local anaesthesia for child and adult patients. You will communicate information regarding oral health in oral and written forms in terms of relevant interpersonal / team communication skills, professional attitudes and ethical behaviours.

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

    COVID-19:  The Vice-Chancellor has approved exemptions for practical and clinical sessions for specific courses at CQUniversity.  Students in the Bachelor of Oral Health course will be required to resume their studies on campus for practical classes on Monday 13th July 2020 for Term 2 (break week from 17 August to 23 August) and Term 3 (9 November to 18th December 2020 with no break week).  Lectures and tutorials will continue to be provided online.  Provisions for social distances will be implemented in the pre-clinical learning spaces for oral health students.  Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be worn as required.  The re-commencement of simulation sessions comes with the proviso that it will be subjected to State and Federal health regulations if the situation with COVID-19 should deteriorate.


    Uniform and clinical attire: All students are to comply with the pre-clinical and uniform requirements of the oral health simulation laboratory as promulgated. All students must comply with Work-Integrated Learning mandatory requirements. Students must abide by infection control policies, guidelines, and procedures at the oral health simulation laboratory.


    Attendance: All absences must be covered with a medical certificate which should be sent to the Unit Coordinator within one week of each absence. Moreover, you need to seek approval by the Unit Coordinator prior to any planned absence.

    2 Portfolio

    Assessment Title
    Portfolio Simulation Laboratory and Barrier Examination

    Task Description

    This assessment consists of completion of dental procedures and a practical barrier examination performed in the simulation laboratory. The barrier examination is to ensure you can practice dental procedures safely and with basic competency. You are given two attempts to pass the barrier examination.  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.  Daily reflections are to be recorded on a personalised blog on ORAL12005 Moodle. The purpose of the personal blog is to record your self-reflection of simulation experience on a daily basis. Please note this needs to be completed each day you are in the simulation lab, however you may use your blog more often if you like for your own personal development. The procedures for each simulation session are outlined in the workbook and the marking criteria are detailed on the Online Real-time Assessment System (ORAS).

    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.
