Demystifying the FBC and the Management of Common Haematological Clinical Conditions
(For Medical Students and Foundation Year Doctors)
5th July 2021
1900-2000 hours (UK time)
Online via Zoom
Most, if not all, patients admitted to hospital will undergo a full blood count test. Although the interpretation might appear easy at first glance, a sound understanding of the basics and subtilities are essential to appreciate the vast number of conditions, diseases and rarer pathologies that a full blood count can highlight. This talk will help to demystify common blood tests undertaken in clinical practice by providing a detailed appreciation of all measured parameters, some of which can often be overlooked. It is intended to improve the attendee's knowledge and enhance his/her clinical acumen, allowing him/her to reach a considered diagnosis when suspecting a haematological pathology or other related conditions.
The assessment and management of the following haematological conditions will be covered during this talk:
- Iron deficiency anaemia
- B12 deficiency
- Reactive thrombocytosis
- Immune thrombocytopenia
- Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia
- Anaemia in IBD
- Secondary polycythemia
- To revise the interpretation of common blood test results.
- To improve the assessment and management of common haematological pathologies.
- Medical Students (clinical years)
- Foundation Year 1 Doctors
- Foundation Year 2 Doctors
