Aim of this module
This module will provide the trainee with a knowledge and understanding of stem cell donation, testing, harvesting and monitoring. They will understand a range of clinical conditions associated with stem cell transplantation requirements. They will gain experience of HLA typing in the matching of donors and suitable recipients. In the work-based module they will be expected to apply this knowledge as they learn to perform relevant laboratory methods and gain experience of the interpretation of patient results in a variety of clinical settings.
This module will provide the trainee with the practical application of knowledge and skills relating to Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics techniques applicable to haematopoietic stem cell transplantation.

Analyse family HLA results to produce pedigree data.
Review and select potential related donors for HSCT, using local and national protocols.
Review and select potential unrelated adult donors for HSCT, using local and national protocols.
Review and select potential cord donors for HSCT, using local and national protocols.
Assess the suitability of potential related and unrelated (adult and cord blood) donors for HSCT, using local and national protocols
Produce an interpretive report of the suitability of potential related and unrelated (adult and cord blood) donors for HSCT for clinical colleagues.
Perform chimerism analysis to assess and monitor patients post HSCT.
Produce an interpretive chimerism report for clinical colleagues, using local and national protocols.
Work in partnership with other clinical specialisms in the investigation of haematopoietic stem cell transplantation and, where appropriate with service users and support staff.
Communicate effectively with the healthcare team recognising and responding appropriately to situations where it is necessary to share information to safeguard service users or the wider public.
