PATH30030 Haematology/Immunosuppression

Academic Year 2021/2022

The Haematology and Immunosuppression module outlines:

1. The diseases of the peripheral blood, bone marrow and lymph nodes and their treatment. It also includes the principles of transfusion; the study of infective agents seen in the immunocompromised patient, helminths and infections seen in the returned traveller and their treatment.

2. The clinical presentation and behaviour of these diseases are introduced together with clinicopathological correlation and elementary planning and evaluation of treatment through case based tutorials, lectures and other modalities such as Multidisciplinary Team sessions (MDTs).

3. The purpose of this module is to provide a strong fundamental understanding of the basic principles of Haematology and Immunosuppression as well as promoting critical thinking around core concepts that will be encountered in clinical practice.

4. Through lectures, tutorials, MDTs, formative and summative assessment practices, the module aims to engage and support self-directed and independent student learning promoting the development of safe, confident and competent medical professionals.

We would like to remind all students taking this module that there is an expectancy of full attendance at all deliverables.

Learning Outcomes:

On successful completion of the Haematology and Immunosuppression module students should have:

1. Improved their biomedical knowledge by being able to:

1A. Describe the mechanisms causing anaemia;
1B. Classify haematologic malignancies, describe their natural histories and their effects on patients;
1C. Describe the mechanisms underlying disorders of bleeding and clotting;
1D. Outline the principles of transfusion of blood and blood products;
1E. Describe the infections seen in the immunosuppressed patient and in patients who have recently travelled abroad;
1F. Classify and describe the behaviour of common pathogenic helminths.

2. Improved their clinical skills by being able to:

2A. Formulate a logical approach to diagnosing the cause of anaemia and apply this to the selection of appropriate treatments;
2B. Explain and discuss the approach to treatment of haematologic malignancies and the agents used in their treatment;
2C. Formulate a rational approach to the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of bleeding and clotting;
2D. Formulate an approach to the diagnosis and treatment of infections seen in the immunosuppressed patient and in patients who have recently travelled abroad, and to infection with common pathogenic helminths.
