Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:

summarise the processes involved in the development, regulation and metabolism of blood cells

evaluate normal and abnormal erythrocytes, leukocytes, reticulocytes and platelets

compare a range of blood cell disorders including discussions of their causes and clinical diagnoses

evaluate the causes, clinical diagnoses, and treatments of non-malignant and malignant leukocyte disorders

solve clinical cases by using haematological methods

select and employ relevant laboratory methods and safe practice in the haematology laboratory
