Aim of this module
This module will provide the trainee with knowledge and understanding of the pathophysiology, clinical presentation and management of patients with haematological malignancy. 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.
