On successful completion of this unit, students should be able to discuss fundamental haematology, including erythrocyte, leukocyte, reticulocyte and platelet morphology, enumeration and function. Skills in enumeration of blood cells and tests of haematological function will be developed during practical exercises. Students should be able to contrast normal blood cell function with disorders of haemostasis affecting blood clotting and iron metabolism affecting blood cell numbers. Distance education students will be required to have access to a computer to make frequent use of internet resources and to attend a residential school on the Rockhampton campus to promote the development of unit learning outcomes.
