Term Specific Information

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 13 July for Term 2 (break week from 17 August to 23 August) and Term 3 (9 November to 18 December with no break week) 2020. Lectures and tutorials will continue to be provided by videoconferencing. Clinical sessions in our Oral Health Clinics will also be extended from 4 days per week to 5 days per week. 4 out of 6 Hospital and Health Services (H&HS) have agreed to place our Year 3 BOralHlth students. Moreover, 3 of these 4 Services are extending their placement times into Term 3 and 2 of these 4 Services are extending their placement days from 4 days per week to 5 days per week. We are most grateful for the good relations and support from these Services in Queensland Health. These clinical placements on campus and in 4 Services are more than sufficient to provide placement opportunities for our 19 final year students. The 6 extra weeks in Term 3 and 1 extra clinical day each week will ensure that all practical and clinical sessions are provided for students in order for each student to demonstrate safe and competent clinical practice within the units for those terms. This extra time-on-task will be commensurate with the 8 weeks lost to the COVID-19 shutdown period. Provisions for social distancing will be implemented in all practical and clinical learning spaces for oral health students. All staff, students and patients will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms and risk factors. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) will be worn as required. The re-commencement of practical and clinical sessions comes with the proviso that it will be subject to State and Federal health regulations if the situation with COVID-19 should deteriorate.
Attendance: All clinical placements for this unit are compulsory - failure to attend clinical placement opportunities will lead to failure in the unit. 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 from any on- or off-campus clinical, community or educational placement. Furthermore, all absences must be made up at operational convenience before the end of the term.
Clinical Attire in the Oral Health Clinics and Residential and Aged Care Facilities: All students are required to wear their oral health polo plus an outer protective garment - theatre gowns are required for this purpose. The theatre gown is also a requirement of Queensland Health. The outer protective garment (theatre gown) must be placed in a plastic bag after the session or day and washed appropriately. All garments must be freshly laundered and ironed. The outer protective garment (theatre gown) cannot be worn in the Oral Health Prosthetic Laboratory or Simulation Laboratory. All students must wear trousers and low-heeled closed-in shoes, wear their protective eyewear, have their hair tied back and wear no jewellery on their hands or arms except for a simple wedding ring. A student can be sent home if the clinical attire is not adequate.
Laboratory Attire in the Oral Health Simulation and Prosthetic Laboratories: All students are required to wear their oral health polo plus an outer protective garment - short laboratory tops or jackets are required for this purpose. The outer protective garment (short laboratory top or jacket) must be placed in a plastic bag after the session or day and washed appropriately. All garments must be freshly laundered and ironed. The outer protective garment (short laboratory top or jacket) cannot be worn in the Oral Health Oral Health Clinics. All students must wear trousers and low-heeled closed-in shoes, wear their protective eyewear, have their hair tied back and wear no jewellery on their hands or arms except for a simple wedding ring. A student can be sent home if the laboratory 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: 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.

3 In-class Test(s)

Assessment Title
Online Examination

Task Description

Your online exam is to be your own individual work and not a result of collaboration with other students. Any identified cases of potential collusion will result in a breach of academic integrity case being raised.
As it is an open book exam, you may refer to your notes, textbooks, the Moodle site and resources online.
The quiz will be opened at 9am on Monday 19 October 2020 and will close at 12 noon on Monday 19 October 2020. Within this time frame you will be allowed 180 minutes to complete the assessment.
You are allowed one attempt only. The exam must be completed within the allocated timeframe.
Open attempts are submitted automatically. This means that if you have technical difficulties, it will save any questions you have already answered.
Questions are a combination of a case study and short answer. I am happy with dot points for short answer questions. A new line for each point/thought would be another alternative (like I have done here).

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?
