Show me unit information for year
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
