Module - Histocompatibility (SLS134)
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
- Actively participate in ward rounds and/or clinics at which patients are being worked up for transplantation. Discuss and critically reflect on your experiences and the involvement of the services provided by the laboratory in the management of patients.
- Attend multidisciplinary review meetings at which laboratory results are presented as part of the clinical record in patients awaiting or being monitored following solid organ transplantation. Critically reflect on your learning from this activity and set out a personal development action plan and provide evidence of completing each action.
- Critically reflect on your own experience of supervision and mentoring and identify how you will use this in your learning training, supervising and mentoring of others.
- Review the case notes of a patient requiring transfusion of Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) matched platelets and discuss the indications, contraindications, potential side effects and the transfusion support the patient may need with the clinical team. Critically reflect on your learning and how it will affect your future practice
