ALLH11006 - Life Course Development for Health Professionals
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ALLH11006 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

This unit will describe and study changes, continuity and growth that occurs in human development from infancy to older age. It will give an overview of the complexities of development, including theoretical frameworks for understanding patterns of transition and constancy across the human life course. Biological, physical, psycho-social, cognitive, cultural and contextual factors affecting development will be discussed. You will be introduced to concepts and terminology used in life course development. Implications of life course development issues for health professional practice will be explored. This course will provide a sound foundation for understanding expected life course events. It will provide a basis for learning about atypical life course occurrences in subsequent courses.

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 Source Recommendation
Written Assessments were seen as “real world” tasks requiring skills needed for health professional practice. Clarification of information in task instructions needed. Exemplars needed improvement. "Have Your Say" The nature and challenges of authentic assessment will be discussed early in the term with students, to assist with clarifying subtasks and requirements. Instructions will be clarified and report templates provided. High quality written assessment exemplars have been sourced, with permission from student authors to publish for next offering.
Quicker turnaround for written assessment (WA1) feedback. Thorough and detailed feedback given. Not enough feedback given to know how to improve. Comments not provided directly on written assignment. "Have Your Say" Strategies and timeframes for feedback return will be reviewed in the context of academic staff workload. Due dates may be revised to facilitate earlier return. Realistic feedback return dates will be explained and clearly published in Moodle.
Some students enjoyed the lectures as clarifying and focusing on pertinent aspects of the topic. Others felt the lectures were hard to follow on the recording when interactions in real time were included, and too long and irrelevant. "Have Your Say" Consider whether lectures are essential for student learning. Consider trial of live Zoom tutorials as an alternative or complementary to shorter lectures. Request venues and AV equipment to align better with teaching approach.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Describe changes that occur across the human life course: infancy, early and middle childhood, adolescence, adulthood and older adulthood.
  2. Explain the impact of physical, biological, cognitive, psychosocial, cultural and contextual factors that relate to life course development.
  3. Create case reports that integrate knowledge of life course development concepts for health professional practice.

2 Written Assessment

Assessment Title 40% Written Assessment 1
Task Description

Overview

A health professional often meets a client for the first time to discuss the client’s history. You will carry out an interview to gather information and create a narrative case history for an older person aged 60-80+ years, using information from a real person you recruit to participate. You will need to demonstrate your ability to organise and document information from clients in relation to reported life course history and events. You will need to categorise information about expected and atypical transitions and occurrences across the life course. Gathering information from an older person can be challenging in the context of typical ageing, as well as when a person is needing healthcare services.

Part A: Narrative Case History

For Part A you will:

1. Seek and obtain consent (verbal or written) from an older adult aged 65-80+ years.

2. Explain why you are interviewing them, who will read the information they share and how long you expect the interview to take (no more than 1- 1½ hours).

3. Before the interview, pre-prepare a list of questions to ask the person related to their transitional life course events in physical, cognitive and psychosocial developmental domains that occurred in the three broad age brackets:

Early adulthood (20-40 years)

Middle adulthood (40-60 years)

Late adulthood (60+years)

4. Interview the person about their experiences.

5. Collate information about the person’s expected developmental events and at least one unexpected developmental transition or event. The unexpected event may be an imaginary physical, cognitive or psychosocial event that you create if there is not a real history to report on. Please make any created event authentic and realistic according to life course information discussed in your text book.

6. Write a 1000-word case history that gives information about the persons’ age, gender and summarises the interview. You should not give a word for word account of your interviewee’s responses. (See the Written Assessment 1 exemplar.) Your narrative will contain the information you collect from your interview in order of the earliest history first. In your written narrative you will give your interviewee an alias to protect their privacy and confidentiality of information. Include your questions as Appendix 1 at the end of your document.

Part B: Content analysis

For Part B you will

1.Complete the 500 word content analysis table that:

  • Includes the names of two life course theories or concepts relevant to each of the three periods of adulthood (a total of six theories or concepts) in Column 1
  • Provides an explanation that clearly links the theory or concept to information from the narrative case history (in Column 2)
  • Clearly identifies the correct stage of the life course that the concept or theory is relevant for (in column 3)
  • Provides two APA 6 style author-date citations for each age period for a total of 6 different sources (in Column 4) from peer reviewed journal articles or text books that MUST be published from 2011-2017 to support your statements (One of these sources may be your textbook)

2. Provide an explanation about how the interview questions were selected, subject capacity for valid and informed consent, how subject's confidentiality and privacy was protected.

3. Provide a full APA 6 style Reference list for all 6 of your author-date citations identified in the content analysis. Do NOT cite any websites in your Reference List. You will lose marks if you cite websites as sources or dates of source publication are earlier than 2011.

4. By the due date, submit up to three (3) 100MB files (clearly labelled with section) to Moodle with your

4 Written Assessment

Assessment Title 40% Written Assessment 2
Task Description

Overview:

As a health professional you need to demonstrate your ability to gather and record information from clients in relation to reported life course history and events. You need to recognise and categorise information about expected and atypical transitions and occurrences across the life course. Gathering information from a parent can be different to information a client provides about themselves. This task also requires you to begin integrating knowledge about medico-legal documentation in the context of writing for a client record. Many medical records are still handwritten and are not completely electronic. You need to ensure you have skills for legible handwriting in templates common to organisations that provide health services.

Part A: Developmental History SOAP Note

You will create a 1000 word developmental case history from birth to 12 years for an adolescent child, using information from the child’s parent. It will be formatted in a SOAP note style and handwritten into a progress note template.

1. Seek and obtain consent (verbal or written) from a parent with a child 13-17 years.

2. Interview the parent about transitional events in physical (gross and fine motor), cognitive and psycho-social developmental domains that occurred for their child in the three broad age brackets:

· Prenatal to 2 years

· 3-5 years

· 6-12 years

3. Collate information about the child’s expected developmental events and at least one unexpected developmental transition or event. The unexpected event may be an imaginary physical, cognitive or psychosocial event that you create if there is not a real history to report on. Please make any created event authentic and realistic according to life course information discussed in your text book.

4. Arrange the information you collect in order of the earliest history first and write the history in third person, past tense.

5. Categorise the information into Subjective (Most information the parent reports to you will be subjective) or Objective (any test results or observations you have made directly during the interview).

6. Write a few brief sentences about your interpretation of what the developmental history means (your Assessment of any future implications from the child’s history. You may write this section in third person, present or future tense.

7. You will need to create a brief imaginary Plan for your next meeting with the parent and child to discuss the unexpected developmental event. Write the Plan in third person, future tense.

8. You must submit both a Word version and a handwritten SOAP case note up to 1000 words documenting your interview with the parent and the child’s history on the template provided. See the WA2 exemplar in the Assessment Resources Folder.

9. Scan your handwritten client record entry that meets medico-legal requirements for documenting a child’s developmental history and parent information. Submit your scanned handwritten SOAP note as a separate file to Moodle.

Part B: Content analysis

Students will write a 1000 word content analysis to demonstrate understanding of client record documentation standards and life course concepts/theories applicable from birth to adolescence.

1. Write a 1000 word content analysis that describes how your case history SOAP note:

· Shows your understanding of life course theories from birth to 2 years, from 3-5 years, and 6 years to adolescence.

· Demonstrates how you have maintained client confidentiality and privacy for your interviewee

· Records how you obtained valid informed client consent- whether verbal, written or implied and date obtained. You must also note the capacity of the person giving consent and any cultural issues for consent


2. Provides at least two APA 6 style author-date citations for each age period, for a total of 6 different sources (2 references for birth to 2 years, 2 references for 3-5 years and 2 references for 6 years to adolescence) that support the statements in your content analysis. Sources MUST be from peer reviewed journal articles or textbooks published from 2011-2017. You are not permitted to cite any websites for this task. One of your sources may be the prescribed text, cited here:

Hoffnung, R.J., Hine, A., Seifert, K.L., Pausé, C., Hoffnung, M., Ward, L., Swabey, K., Burton Smith, R. & Yates, K. (2015). Lifespan Development (3rd ed.). John Wiley & Sons Australia: Milton QLD.

3. Provide a full APA 6 style Reference list for all 6 of your author-date citations identified in the content analysis. Do NOT cite any websites in your Reference List. You will lose marks if you cite websites as sources or dates of source publication are earlier than 2011.

4. Submit your scanned handwritten SOAP note, written Content Analysis with references (document can be word processed) to Moodle by the due date. You may submit up to 3 separate files of 100MB each.

Detailed task instructions and exemplars will be available in the Assessment Resources Folder on Moodle.
