NUTR71-701: Professional Placement Internship - Individual Case Management B September 2018 [Situated - Weeks 7 - 12]

General information

The nutrition and dietetics professional placement internship (PPI) program is distributed across five subjects that collectively meet the professional placement accreditation requirements of the Dietitians Association of Australia. The PPI provides a minimum of 24 weeks professional practice in the fields of Individual Case Management (2 x PPIs), Food Service Management (1 x PPI), Community and Public Health Nutrition (1 x PPI) and an elective setting (1 x PPI). In this PPI, students continue to perform Individual Case Management (ICM) in settings such as private hospitals for a minimum 5-week, full-time internship. This is performed under the supervision of Accredited Practising Dietitians (APDs) who are affiliated with and supported by Bond University. On completion of this PPI, students’ attainment of ICM competency is assessed by the Practice Supervisor in conjunction with the Internship Coordinator at Bond University. Final assessment of ICM competency to determine fitness to practice and eligibility to graduate from the Master of Nutrition and Dietetic Practice (MNDP) program will occur in the final year of the MNDP program.

Workload items:
  • Placement: x6 (Total hours: 180) - Professional Placement
Attendance and learning activities: Attendance is compulsory and is a part of competence. All work builds on the work of the previous days and weeks. Acceptable grounds for requesting the approval of absences include, but are not limited to, if the Student has: an illness, an accident, a family bereavement/funeral attendance, special religious occasions and representative sporting events at a state, national or international level (in accordance with Bond University policies). Late arrival or early departure from any teaching session without the demonstration of acceptable grounds and supporting documentation will be deemed to be an unplanned absence. Time missed during internships due to employment or personal engagements are not acceptable grounds for absence. Completion of the absence form and provision of supporting documentation (i.e. medical certificate, statutory declaration) should be forwarded to the Internships Coordinator via email. More than one day absence in one PPI requires the full complement of days missed over all PPI’s to be made-up at the end of the placement. Attendance is monitored due to the need for completion of tasks and activities that certify competence within the 24 weeks of internship. Although efforts will be made to liaise with placement sites, alternative placement days may not be available to make up for non-attendance.

Assessment criteria

Pass Usually awarded to students whose performance meets the requirements set for work provided for assessment.
Fail Usually awarded to students whose performance is not considered to meet the minimum requirements set for particular tasks. The fail grade may be a result of insufficient preparation, of inattention to assignment guidelines or lack of academic ability. A frequent cause of failure is lack of attention to subject or assignment guidelines.

Quality assurance

For the purposes of quality assurance, Bond University conducts an evaluation process to measure and document student assessment as evidence of the extent to which program and subject learning outcomes are achieved. Some examples of student work will be retained for potential research and quality auditing purposes only. Any student work used will be treated confidentially and no student grades will be affected.

Policy on late submission and extensions

Unexplained late submissions will not be considered.

Policy on plagiarism

University’s Academic Integrity Policy defines plagiarism as the act of misrepresenting as one’s own original work: another’s ideas, interpretations, words, or creative works; and/or one’s own previous ideas, interpretations, words, or creative work without acknowledging that it was used previously (i.e., self-plagiarism). The University considers the act of plagiarising to be a breach of the Student Conduct Code and, therefore, subject to the Discipline Regulations which provide for a range of penalties including the reduction of marks or grades, fines and suspension from the University.

Bond University utilises Originality Reporting software to inform academic integrity.

Feedback on assessment

Feedback on assessment will be provided to students within two weeks of the assessment submission due date, as per the Assessment Policy.

Disability support

If you have a disability, illness, injury or health condition that impacts your capacity to complete studies, exams or assessment tasks, it is important you let us know your special requirements, early in the semester. Students will need to make an application for support and submit it with recent, comprehensive documentation at an appointment with a Disability Officer. Students with a disability are encouraged to contact the Disability Office at the earliest possible time, to meet staff and learn about the services available to meet your specific needs. Please note that late notification or failure to disclose your disability can be to your disadvantage as the University cannot guarantee support under such circumstances.
