Assessment purpose:
A case scenario-based written assessment task will be introduced to students to explore the roles of public health professionals, nurses, and midwives in promoting health promotion interventions among vulnerable populations.

The title of the assignment is “Promoting oral and dental health for kids.”  The aim of the assessment task is to explore the roles of nurses and midwives in promoting oral and dental health, especially when working with vulnerable populations. Working through this assessment task, students will be able to discuss the importance of dental and oral health to overall health and wellbeing from a primary health care perspective and vulnerable populations. As a future registered nurse/midwife, our students are expected to play an important role in the provision of ‘person-centred’ holistic health care. To ensure this, it is imperative that students understand the social, cultural, behavioural, and biomedical factors to overcome barriers in providing holistic care to a vulnerable population. In this Assessment task, students will choose one of the two vulnerable population groups – refugee children or indigenous children and then discuss dental and oral health care in relation to their chosen group in a specific setting.

Details of task: Prepare a student’s response by critically analysing Australia’s  National Oral Health Plan 2015 – 2024 and “how to brush”   poster prepared by the Dental Health Services Victoria in relation to the student’s chosen population group and identify barriers, further resource needs for the chosen population group.

In preparing Student Response, students are expected to address the following questions:

  1. Define dental/oral health (general definition), and briefly describe three consequences of poor dental/oral health for a chosen population group and the determinants of health applicable to the chosen population.
  2. Critically analyse the poster (strengths and weaknesses) in relation to a chosen population group and briefly discuss three possible barriers to implementing the suggested dental hygiene practices.
  3. Briefly discuss the resources needed to improve dental/oral health for a chosen population group.
  4. Critically examine Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives: Australia’s National Oral Health Plan 2015 - 2024 (see below for link) for the inclusion of a chosen population group and identify any gaps that exist. Also discuss the roles of levels of Australia’s oral health system and other stakeholders.
