Module - Genomics of Sporadic Cancers (SLS423)
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
- Observe bone marrow sampling. Critically reflect on your observation and discuss the implications for sample management with your supervisor.
- Observe pathological dissection in histopathology and identify the implications for tissue sampling and mixed cell populations.
- Attend and participate in a relevant MDT and identify the role and importance of these in the management of patients and the patient pathway.
- Gain experience of the following and reflect on their importance, application and effect on patient management:
- FISH analysis using the appropriate probes.
- Chromosomal analysis on samples from patients with CML, ALL and AML.
- Appropriate molecular testing on various cancer samples to include both genotyping assays for single or small numbers of mutations and NGS panels for “hot-spot” mutations.
