Knowledge of the normal physiology of the major organs is also assumed. Special Study Requirements: None Required resources: Broadband access and/or mobile device Additional subject requirements: None Class materials: None STAFF CONTACTS Module leader: Dr SEAH Seng Wee Email: SengWee.SEAH@psb-academy.edu.sg ABOUT THIS SUBJECT This subject addresses the commonly encountered pathology tests in the two major clinical pathology areas of haematology and biochemistry. Topics include blood cell morphology; full blood examination (FBE); leukaemia, haemoglobinophathies; haemostasis; drug-induced blood dyscrasias; introduction to blood group serology. The clinical biochemistry component encompasses serum components, enzymes, proteins, lipoproteins and other components of diagnostic interest such as bilirubin, sugars, minerals and blood gases. Numerous case studies will be examined with a view to developing the analytical skills of the student. Discipline knowledge and change management skills will be further applied in the development and proposal of novel ideas designed to bring about improvements in diagnosis, service, quality or efficiency in clinical pathology environments. Page 2 of 9 SUBJECT INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (SILOs) Upon successful completion of this subject, you should be able to: 1 Accurately interpret essential laboratory tests used to diagnose common disorders of a haematological and biochemical nature and be able to apply this knowledge to the solving of simple case studies. 2 Investigate the dynamic changes taking place in Point of Care Testing (POCT) and reflect on how these have come about and why. 3 Evaluate complex case studies involving diverse pathology to the extent that a reasonable hypothesis can be constructed. 4 Identify new technologies that will influence the future of pathology diagnosis and generate novel ideas about how these will benefit stakeholders such as patients, pathology laboratories and GPs. 5 Manage the transition of Point of Care Testing and other technologies into practice by resolving the competing interests of stake holders such as GPs pathology laboratories and pharmacists. 6 Present case studies and innovative ideas in a professional, engaging and persuasive manner. 7 Collaborate effectively in teams to address problems and future challenges in haematology and biochemistry. 8 Demonstrate active pursuit of independent learning strategies and critical analysis of information sources and tools.

Academic integrity education is integral to the learning experience at La Trobe University. The University requires its academic staff and students to observe the highest ethical standards in all aspects of academic work, and it demonstrates its commitment to these values by awarding due credit for honestly conducted scholarly work, and by penalising academic misconduct and all forms of cheating”.
