Blood Sciences
Study Day
The Studio Birmingham, 7 Cannon Street, Birmingham, B2 5EP

About Us

We are a team of experienced Biomedical Scientists with over 20 years experience in the laboratory field of Diagnostic Haematology aiming to improve the background knowledge in the field of Haematology, Biochemistry and Transfusion Science.

This study day is aimed at Healthcare Professionals (Biomedical Scientists) working towards state registration or specialist portfolios in Haematology and Transfusion Science. Alternatively, this course is also aimed at those laboratories working towards multi-disciplinary scientists enabling Biochemists to initiate their wider learning into the field of Haematology and Transfusion Science.

This course centres around building “Templates” for interpreting FBC (full blood count) results, incorporating the use of Biochemistry to aid in the diagnosis of haematological malignancies & blood disorders such as:

Nutritional Anaemias
Coagulation
Platelet Disorders (ITP/TTP/DIC/HUS)
Haemolytic Anaemia
Haemoglobinopathy/Thalassaemia
Acute/Chronic Leukemia
MDS/MPD
APML
Myeloma

This course is ideal to build the foundations of knowledge when completing the IBMS specialist portfolio in how to structure the evidence for Biomedical Scientists.

We also aim to improve the interpretation skills for Antibody investigations in Blood Transfusion.

What I’ve learned from the templates in one day is more than what I’ve learned in 2 years as a trainee.”

A very simplistic and effective method of understanding how to interpret FBCs and reduce blood film requesting.

I’m a Biochemist working towards multi-disciplinary practice. This course really helped me understanding the foundations of haematology and how the 2 disciplines are connected.
