General Information

Overview

This unit is a sequel to ORAL13001 Oral Health Clinical Placement 1 which consolidates skills learnt previously in Term 1. This capstone unit will provide you with the integration of 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 exposed to a real work environment where 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 may include 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 refine clinical judgment skills in identifying patients who require referral pathways for complex care outside one's scope of practice. Your ability for self-evaluation of knowledge and clinical skills within a supportive and confidence- building environment should be at the level of a new graduate by the end of the term. Lastly, you will be able to communicate information regarding oral health in oral and written forms utilising appropriate 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.

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 Annual Unit Evaluation report and feedback from Year 3 Student Representatives at Oral Health Staff Meetings.

Feedback

The students value the clinical placements in the School Dental Service.

Recommendation

The clinical placements in the School Dental Service should be retained in 2017. This is a partnership / agreement between Central Queensland Hospital and Health Service and CQUniversity. Clinical placements in other Health Districts will also be sought for 2017 and beyond.

Feedback from Annual Unit Evaluation report and feedback from Year 3 Student Representatives at Oral Health Staff Meetings.

Feedback

A couple of students were very critical of the performance of their peers in this unit.

Recommendation

If any student has any concerns about the performance of another student, they should raise this issue with the Unit Coordinator during the term. Regular meetings between the Student Representatives and the CQUniveristy academics and clinical supervisors will take place in 2017 to discuss peer issues as they arise. Writing negative comments about peers in the Unit Evaluation at the end of the term is not helpful to anyone concerned. All students need to be supported and helped all through the term.

Feedback from Annual Unit Evaluation report and feedback from Year 3 Student Representatives at Oral Health Staff Meetings.

Feedback

A few students were very critical of some private clinical placements.

Recommendation

Students need to embrace active learning in different environments and make the most of these valuable opportunities. Regular meetings between the Clinical Supervisors and the CQUniveristy academics will take place in 2017 to discuss clinical placement issues as they arise. Moreover, regular meetings between the Student Representatives and the CQUniveristy academics and clinical supervisors will also take place in 2017 to discuss clinical placement issues as they arise. Writing negative comments about clinical placement sites in the Unit Evaluation at the end of the term is not helpful to anyone concerned - it can be very damaging to the reputation of the owners of the private dental practices. CQUniversity needs to work closely with clinical placement sites in order to maximise student learning opportunities and ensure privacy and confidentiality is maintained by students about activities at the clinical placement sites.

Presentation

Task Description

You will be required to attend an oral presentation 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 for whom you have provided dental treatment in the student clinics. It is recommended that you include dental records, clinical photographs, x-rays and a study model (if appropriate) of your patient. These MUST be de-identified.

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 plan and justify appropriate treatment modalities. Your care 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 care and home-care preventive strategies are planned and managed.

OR

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.
