In Haematology 1, you will study blood, the blood-forming organs, and blood diseases, including the aetiology, diagnosis, treatment, prognosis, and prevention of blood diseases such as leukaemia, anaemia, haemophilia and deep vein thrombosis.
In the first half of the unit you will study normal haemopoiesis, routine haematological screening procedures, recognition of cells of the peripheral blood and recognition of normal and abnormal features in peripheral blood smears are examined. In the second half of the unit, you will study normal haemostasis, the causes and classification of bleeding disorders, anticoagulant therapy, thrombotic disorders, laboratory investigation of haemostasis and quality control.
An integrated series of lectures, tutorials and practicals present theoretical concepts with an emphasis on the development of laboratory skills and problem solving through haematological case studies.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified).

- Communicate, demonstrate and apply practical methodology and theoretical knowledge, about the structure and physiology of haematological cells and their function in health and disease.
- Communicate, demonstrate and apply practical methodology and theoretical knowledge about the haemostatic system and its function to health and disease.
- Critically analyse and interpret laboratory data and clinical information to diagnose haematological disorders.
- Apply haematological determinants to diagnose haematological disorders through the correlation of laboratory data with clinical presentation and provide a theoretical basis to justify further laboratory testing.
- Communicate using discipline specific terminology related to haematology.
