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.
