General information: All health professionals need to be able to communicate and justify their work to a non-specialist audience, which may comprise those involved in policy-making decisions as well as the general public. As you will be aware, the health sciences are often poorly represented by the media. There are plentiful examples of reporting that may be sensationalistic, misleading, biased (e.g. on vaccine safety), inaccurate (e.g. many media sources seem to view the words bacteria and viruses as interchangeable), or all four. Hence, there is a need for, and a potential career in, good writing and communication in the health professional arena.
This assessment involves addressing a series of generic questions in the form of an essay. The questions relate directly to the case studies presented. Key points to note are below:
• Your answers must be incorporated into sentences and paragraphs that include facts from the case study. • All answers must be specific for the person in the case study; marks will not be given where your essay does not relate to the person in the case study. • The answers to the questions in the case study must be integrated into an essay, which should include an appropriate introduction and conclusion; no marks will be given for ‘quality of essay’ if a question-answer style is presented. • You can present the information in the order that you feel flows best; you don’t have to present it in the order of the questions. • The information you present must be synthesised from reliable sources (e.g. peer-reviewed articles in the scientific and clinical research literature, and textbooks). • Care must be taken in all aspects of the essay, including spelling and grammar.
Do I need to reference my case study essay? Yes, you must include appropriate in-text citations and a reference list in APA style (7th edition). Penalties will be applied as per the marking criteria for inadequate and/or incorrect referencing. You can find resources to assist you with correct APA referencing on the Academic Skills Unit LEO site.
Academic misconduct: Take special care to avoid plagiarism. Use of the text matching software “Turnitin” has been approved to assist in the avoidance and detection of plagiarism. We remind you that all students are bound by the ACU Academic Integth and Misconduct Policy. Your submitted work MUST be prepared by you alone and expressed in your own words.
