General Information

Overview

In this capstone unit you will integrate your knowledge, skills and professional experience in a range of environments, such as the CQUniversity Health Clinic, private dental surgeries, public dental clinics, community settings, residential care facilities, local schools and the Rockhampton Base Hospital, in preparation for employment as an oral health therapist. You will be able to demonstrate competence in total patient care over a range of clinical preventive and operative procedures with child and adult patients. This includes the provision of total patient care for patients who are medically compromised, with special needs, with co-morbidity and poly-pharmacy, with fixed and/or removable oral prostheses, with root caries and those requiring direct intra-coronal restorations. You will also develop clinical judgment skills in identifying patients who require referral for complex care outside one's scope of practice. Reflective and self-directed learning will improve your ability as a clinician in a supportive and confidence- building environment. Lastly, 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 prior to the commencement of clinical placement.

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 Evaluation of Unit

Feedback

Students requested another type of assessment for Infection Control as the one used in Term 1 2018 was not entirely relevant.

Recommendation

Other types of assessment for Infection Control will be explored and implemented for Term 1 2019.

Feedback from Student Evaluation of Unit

Feedback

Students requested an electronic diary rather than a hard copy diary for their written reflective practice notes.

Recommendation

An electronic diary through a personal blog via Moodle will be explored and implemented in Term 1 2019.

Feedback from Student Evaluation of Unit

Feedback

Students requested more training for clinical supervisors in providing useful and consistent feedback.

Recommendation

The Oral Health team will discuss ways to reinforce the benefits of useful, timely and consistent feedback from clinical supervisors to our students. Academics will need to take time to have two-way meetings with clinical supervisors in person, on the telephone or via ZOOM at regular intervals during the term.

home if the clinical attire is not adequate.

Workplace Health and Safety: Students must abide by infection control policies, guidelines and
procedures at each clinical placement. All mandatory requirements for clinical practice must be met
before and during the term. Failure to comply will lead to withdrawal from the clinical placements
and failure in the Unit.

Clinical Practical Component: In each clinical and laboratory session, you are required to complete
all the clinical oral health practice and laboratory exercises. These practical components are designed to
consolidate, apply and extend the theory learnt in lectures into clinical practice. All activities are graded
by the supervisor using criterion-referenced assessment rubrics.

Assessment Tasks

1 Presentation

Assessment Title
Case Presentation

Task Description

You will be required to attend an oral examination which will be scheduled in the examination period.


With the support of a Power Point presentation, you will be required to present an in-depth case report for either a child, adolescent or adult patient whom you have provided dental treatment for in the student clinics. It is recommended that you include de-identified clinical photos and x-rays of your patient and his/her study model, if appropriate. Each case report must include justification for the way you have managed the treatment and prevention strategies.


The child, adolescent or adult patient needs to have presented with hard tissue pathology (dental caries), requiring you to treatment plan and justify the appropriate treatment modalities. Your treatment plan must include the determinants of oral health for your patient, i.e. a focus on the developmental stages of the patient, in particular relating this to the way your clinical and home treatment and preventive strategies are planned and managed.


OR


A child, adolescent or adult patient who has presented with soft tissue pathology (periodontitis) and/or hard tissue pathology (dental caries) and/or a medical condition which may or may not impede on the treatment you can provide. You are required to treatment plan and justify the appropriate treatment modalities. Your treatment plan must include the determinants of oral health for your patient, i.e. consideration of the social and cognitive abilities of the patient, in particular, you need to relate this to the way your clinical and home treatment and preventive strategies are planned and managed.


Referencing:

A reference slide for the discussion section must cover all aspects of oral care provided, in relation to the points made above. References will be both in-text and in reference list at the end of the PowerPoint presentation. https://www.cqu.edu.au/student-life/services-and-facilities/referencing/cquniversity-referencing-guides


Questions and Comments:

At the end of your presentation, you will be asked a short series of clinical questions by a small panel (3) of examiners. They will also comment on what you have said and how you have presented the case presentation.


Rationale:

The learning objectives you will be assessed on are:

• be able to critically appraise published scientific literature and apply the relevant knowledge to oral health practice

• be able to apply entry level proficiencies in all scopes of oral health therapy practice with emphasis on prevention skills in performing an extensive range of treatment and preventive procedures within the   scope of the oral health practitioner.

• be able to identify and apply the appropriate requirements of special needs clients within the oral health setting

• be able to assess and implement critical preventive strategies for high need communities including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities be able to demonstrate entry level skill in working cooperatively with dental and allied health care professionals to meet the holistic needs of the patient

• be able to apply advanced educational, preventative and therapeutic oral health care

• be able to consistently demonstrate clinical proficiency in all areas of oral health practice.

• be able to demonstrate professional behaviour and attitudes at a level ready to be registered as a health professional in all learning environments including the patient and simulation clinics.


Presentation:

You will be required to present an in-depth case report for either a child, adolescent or adult patient with the support of a PowerPoint presentation. Please bring your presentation with you on a memory stick – do not bring a laptop or tablet and do not use an external hosting site. Please make sure that your presentation is compatible with the CQUniversity Windows operating system. You should include clinical photos of your patient and a study model if appropriate. The study model must have the patient's real name and date of birth written on the back for correct storage. The study models MUST NOT leave the dental building, and be left with clinical staff immediately following the viva examination. The patient must be one that you have provided dental treatment for at some stage in the patient clinic and the identification of the patient MUST BE anonymous in your presentation. Failure to comply with keeping the identification of your patient anonymous is in breach of patient privacy and will result in a fail grade for this assessment. You must also have a slide at the beginning of the presentation which states a declaration that you have accessed the dental records in keeping with CQUniversity and Queensland Health clinic protocols, and the copy of the records will be destroyed. You must leave these pages with academic staff to deposit in the shredding bins. You must engage with, and look at, the examiners – reading from large notes with little or no eye contact is unacceptable.


Requirements:

You are required to present a case presentation to a panel of examiners for up to 15 minutes with a variation of 1-minute more. At completion of your oral presentation, the examiners will question you on a selection of clinical content relevant overall to oral health therapy practice, but not limited to the case you've presented. The panel will consist of three CQUniversity academics / clinical supervisors. This Term 1 assessment task will assist you in preparing for the Term 2 assessment.


Assistance:

For assistance with this task, please look at the information available on the Academic Learning Centre’s website – http://www.cqu.edu.au/about-us/service-and-facilities/academic-learning-centre

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?
