91358 Haematology 26cp; 5hpw
Requisite(s): 91563 Haematology 1
In this subject students study the disease processes related to hereditary, acquired, benign and malignant disorders of haematological systems. With a strong emphasis on interpreting and analysing background information and microscopy, students are taught to make provisional haematological diagnosis by referring to current haematological practices including specialised stains and suggest tests which help confirm their diagnosis. The lectures introduce students to the theory behind the pathophysiology of haematological disorders while practical classes focus on the microscopic morphological examination of peripheral blood and bone marrow in disease. In addition, during the cytogenetic component of the subject, students complete hands-on karyotype analysis of cytogenetic abnormalities and, using other skills developed during the subject, are able to identify genetic abnormalities in case studies.
The subject exposes students to industry perspectives, and strategies throughout, and supports students to develop their professional skills and put this to practice through the interpretation of haematological tests and the diagnosis of disease. This subject strongly supports current workplace practices for modern laboratories and throughout the session students learn skills and develop the abilities that helps them succeed as graduates.
