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
Placement gave the students good hands on experience and they were able to connect theory and practice Students and 'Have your say' student feedback Continue with providing work placement opportunities.
The work book had little focus on the placement that i did. I did a cardiovascular placement and only had 4 pages in the workbook compared to respiratory and neuro. Possibly create workbooks for each discipline. 'Have your say' student feedback To revise the workbook, so work load for assessment for each discipline os equal.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Develop knowledge and competence in the professional work role context.
  2. Explore quality assurance and quality control procedures.
  3. Justify ethical and legal considerations for patient data and data storage.
  4. Understand the diagnostic process.
  5. Build communication skills and problem solving skills in the workplace.

1 Practical and Written Assessment

Assessment Title Placement Workbook
Task Description

To provide structure to the learning during the placement, a workbook will act as the principle learning activity and assessment tool. There are two separate workbooks; one for students specialising in pathology and another for those specialising in clinical investigations. Each workbook has been developed in collaboration with employers and using professional body guidelines. Training 'at the bench' or 'in the clinic setting' will be supervised by a qualified Medical Scientist, but actual training may be delegated to other competent staff. A series of activities have been designed to test the student's ability to contextualise the training. At the end of periods of training in particular tasks the training supervisor will assess competence and sign a declaration that the student has demonstrated a basic level of competence to perform the defined task. To develop their communication skills students will be encouraged to ask questions of other members of the team in order to answer some of the questions in the workbook.

Some tasks can be marked against the standard CQUniversity grading criteria and will be used to determine an overall mark for the unit, whilst the competence-based tasks will be evaluated on a simple pass/fail basis. The student must pass all competence-based tasks for which they have received training. If the competence-based tasks are failed then a mark of zero will be entered as the mark for this unit irrespective of any percentage marks gained on other forms of assessment.

Assessment Due Date To be submitted 1 week after completion of the placement
Return Date to Students 3 weeks after submission of the workbook
Weighting 50%
Assessment Criteria

The workbook provides a breakdown of marks associated for each task and also provides guidance on what the marker is expecting you to include or consider. A minimum overall mark of 50% must be achieved for the marked assessment to pass the unit.

Conditions Minimum mark or grade - 50% overall for workbook assignments.
