Required texts, recommended texts and references in particular are likely to change. Students will be provided with a subject outline once they enrol in the subject. Subject handbook information prior to is available in the Archives. UTS: Science: Life Sciences Result type: Grade and marks Requisite s : Human Anatomy and Physiology Description This subject is designed to introduce the basic concepts of haematology and their practical application in a modern laboratory.

The cells of the blood and bone marrow are studied in detail with regard to their identification, morphology and function. The development of these cells haematopoesis and their role in haemostasis and immune function is investigated. Students are also introduced to haematological diseases and the significance of haematological changes in disease. Students study modern laboratory analysers, and their functions and limitations, as well as how to interpret and troubleshoot issues from these automated machines.

The practical sessions introduce students to the variety of manual haematological techniques used in pathology and research laboratories. Students learn how to complete manual haematology tasks and interpret the results they obtain.

To develop the skills needed to be a successful scientist in the field, the subject includes a strong focus of haematology morphology via the microscopy needed to make informed clinical interpretations which lead to accurate diagnosis of haematological disorders. Subject learning objectives SLOs Upon successful completion of this subject students should be able to: 1.

Work safely in a laboratory using blood products and perform tests following safety guidelines and using universal safety precautions. Measure, calculate and interpret normal and abnormal blood indices and relate the finding to a provision haematological diagnosis.

Recognise and describe the morphology, metabolism and function of developing and mature red and white blood cells, platelets and coagulation pathways.

Identify and explain the changes that are associated with blood and coagulation disorders in the diagnosis of haematological disease.

Compare and contrast different manual testing methods to laboratory automation, and critically evaluate the limitations and sources of error of both methods, including flags and error codes and how to troubleshoot automated Machines. Describe the basic principles of cytogenetics, identify common cytogenetic abnormalities and recognise its relationship to the identification of haematological malignancies. Identify abnormal changes within the peripheral blood film and discuss the implications of these changes on patients health, including in the paediatric population.

Course intended learning outcomes CILOs This subject also contributes specifically to the development of following course intended learning outcomes: Apply: Use contemporary technologies for the collection and analysis of data and apply evidence-based practice at all levels of laboratory investigation. Disciplinary Knowledge You will develop an understanding of the nature, practice and application of the fundamental concepts underlying the disciplines of haematology.

The knowledge and understanding of the haematological techniques studied and practiced in this subject will aid in developing competence in relevant, current laboratory skills for professional practice and research.

In this subject you will also acquire the sound theoretical background to make reasoned scientific and technological judgments and make responsible decisions affecting laboratory operations. This will be assessed in the theory exam,laboroatory skills test and pre-lab quizes.

Research, inquiry and critical thinking You will engage in laboratory practicals and workshops that present case studies and experimental data, which will develop expertise in data analyses, problem solving and critical thinking skills. Professional, ethical and social responsibility Through the practical and workshop programme you will develop the ability to acquire, develop, employ and integrate a range of technical, practical and professional skills, within a professional context, both autonomously and collaboratively, across the disciplinary areas of haematology.

During practical sessions there will be opportunities to develop expertise in laboratory skills and data handling skills. This will be assessed in the Laboratory skills test and practical exams. Teaching and learning strategies The subject will be divided into two modules, the first focusing on the basic theoretical knowledge of haematology with an emphasis on microscopy and direct application of knowledge.

The second module uses the knowledge obtained for the first and focuses on its application in real world laboratory practices. Practical classes will be conducted in laboratories and involve hands-on approaches to learning. The first module will focus on microscopy, relating what you learn in your lectures to what you see down the microscope. You will also learn how to interpret haematological calculations in order to make provision diagnosis for patients.

You will have laboratory manuals and experienced demonstrators to assist and guide you through the practical aspects of these subjects. Each practical class has a checklist of practical learning outcomes of which you should obtain by the end of each class, these outcomes are closely linked with skills expected in professional practice.

You should familiarise yourself with the procedures prior to attending practical classes, by pre-reading the relevant sections in the manual before the timetabled session. This will aid you in making the most out of the in-class session, and hence maximise your learning potential in this subject.

As your final practical exam is open book, it is in your best interest to fill out your manual in detail and answer all the pre-lab and post-lab questions.

The second module will have a strong focus on developing the skills needed to work in a modern laboratory. This will be done through accessing online presentations to help complete a research task and oral presentation, a learning exercise using real world interactive case studies, presentations from industry professionals who will take you through the Automations and the use of modern laboratory analysers and explain to you what your role as scientists is in a modern laboratory.

This will be followed up by a workshop where you will interpret anaylser printouts and engage in a mock interview. There will also be a focus on learning the skills required in order for you to compile constructive feedback for your peers.

There will be learning activities where you will work in groups and share findings with other students. The second module will involve engagement with interactive case studies where you will participate through electronic audience response systems in lectures, or through verbal presentation in practical classes and tutorials. There will be online youtube videos or case studies to view before some lecture series.

You will learn the pediatric haematology topic via an online lecture and then expand on your knowledge through your own research and student presentations. Your practical manuals, lecture notes and other additional resources will be made available to you through UTSOnline.

Practical classes will have tasks that need to be checked off by demonstrators, allowing you to monitor your ability to perform the expected tasks before your practical assesments.

Results for spot tests will be provided online as well as through a feedback session in your practical class. Results and feedback, including a summary of how your peers reviewed your oral presentation, will also be made available through UTSOnline. Content topics The lecture series for each discipline is designed to introduce you to the language and basic concepts of haematology.

The practical sessions provide an introduction to a variety of techniques and procedures that are the cornerstones of haematological analysis in clinical and research laboratories. In workshop sessions problem-based learning activities will be used to explore contemporary topics in haematology, as well as a focus on modern laboratory practices and to provide opportunities to apply knowledge to real life situations.

Emphasis is also placed on the development of scientific communication skills through oral presentations and peer review.

Educ Health Abingdon. Integrating a primer course in biostatistics into the haematology practicals of first-year medical students in India. Vaz M 1. Knowledge of statistics is particularly important in the context of "evidence-based medicine". OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of a biostatistics course integrated into the practical haematology first-year medical course with the following special characteristics: 1 students learn statistics on data generated by and on themselves, 2 the course avoids mathematical computation, 3 the statistical exercises are linked to the learning objectives of the physiology curriculum, and 4 the course is without the threat of university examinations. METHODS: Statistical exercises were incorporated into specific haematology practicals with the aim of covering simple descriptive and inferential statistics. Statistics tests were administered, without prior information, to 60 first-year medical students before the biostatistics course, immediately following the course, and nine months later.
