Module - Immunodeficiency and Immunotherapy (SLS137)
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 outpatient clinics where patients with a range of primary and secondary immunodeficiencies are treated and reflect on the efficacy of each treatment strategy, the side effects and effect on quality of life, and prepare some case reviews to describe your learning.
- Participate in multidisciplinary review meetings where immunology results are presented as part of the clinical care of patients who have an immunodeficiency and/or are undergoing immunotherapy and critically evaluate how a partnership approach between Clinical Immunology and other clinical specialisms benefits patients who are undergoing investigations of the immune system.
- Attend clinics where patients are referred for the investigation of immunodeficiency and/or are undergoing immunotherapy and review and generate your own report from the immunological investigations undertaken.
- Critically appraise the internal quality control and external quality assessment performance of three different methods used in the investigation of immunodeficiency.
- Contribute to Immunology teaching programme.
