Module - Genetics Genomics and Molecular Science (SLS402)
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 multidisciplinary team meetings at which the results of genetic and genomic investigations are discussed and reflect on discussions and the impact of multidisciplinary working on patient treatment and management, in addition to the partnership between Genetics and other clinical specialisms in the investigation of genetic and genomic disorders functions in the patient pathway.
- Attend specialist genetics clinics and review/report on the process, patient engagement and experience in connection with the work of these clinics.
- Observe cell culture and chromosome preparation techniques and reflect on their importance in the investigation process
- Gain experience of each of the following and personally reflect on the importance, application and effect on patient management:
- Investigation of chromosomal abnormality, the correct sampling technique, relevant quality parameters and the correct use of nomenclature
- Investigation of the molecular basis of disease, the correct sampling technique, relevant quality parameters and the correct use of nomenclature
- Interpretation and reporting of laboratory results in the context of named genetic disorders
