        3 In-class Test(s)

        Assessment Title
        Case Presentation

        Task Description

        You will be required to present a 15 minutes oral presentation case study (variation of +/-1 minute) at a time during the review/exam weeks allocated by the unit co-ordinator. . 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 one internal CQUniversity academic and two external examiners. All presentations will be recorded via ZOOM. The Chair, will admit you into the ZOOM meeting when the panel is ready for your presentation. We could be running late – please be patient.

        With the support of a PowerPoint presentation, you will be required to present a case presentation for either 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 in-clinic and at-home treatment and preventive strategies are planned and managed. This must be a patient whom you have provided dental treatment during your ORAL13002 clinical placement. Each case presentation must include justification on your disease risk assessment, prognosis, diagnosis and treatment plan. The patient case study must be de-identified and include clinical documentation such as clinical photos, radiographs, and further investigation results, if appropriate. Failure to comply with de identifying the patient 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 the clinical placement sites clinic protocols.

        The learning objectives of this assessment are:

        • Critically appraise published scientific literature and apply the relevant knowledge to oral health practice
        • 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.
        • 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
        • Apply advanced educational, preventative and therapeutic oral health care
        • Consistently demonstrate clinical proficiency in all areas of oral health practice.
        • 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.

        Referencing: References will be both in-text and in a 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 the panel of examiners. They will also comment on what you have said and how you have presented the case presentation.

                        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.
