Module - Hemostasis (SLS132)
Clinical experiential learning is the range of activities trainees may undertake in order to gain the experience and evidence to demonstrate their achievement of module competencies and assessments. The list is not definitive or mandatory, but training officers should ensure, as best training practice, that trainees gain as many of these clinical experiences as possible. They should be included in training plans, and once undertaken they should support the completion of module assessments and competencies within the e-portfolio.
Clinical experiential learning
- Attend a haematology outpatients’ clinic (including anticoagulation clinics) and observe near patient testing and monitoring. Reflect on and review your experience, and discuss the patient experience, the key factors reflecting the importance of such clinics for patient management and key learning points for your future practice.
- Observe family counselling and report on your experience, including the role of this service and its integration with laboratory investigation of haemostasis.
- Critically appraise the internal quality control and external quality assessment of three methods used to investigate haemostasis and two methods used to investigate thrombosis. Report and discuss your findings, including key learning points for your future practice.
