Title Clinical Biochemistry - Evaluation of an analytical method
Type Stage One
Code HLS011
Requirement Compulsory

Module objective

By the end of the training period trainees will, in respect of the evaluation of an analytical method, be able to:

  • analyse, synthesise, evaluate and apply knowledge
  • perform a range of technical and clinical skills and procedures
  • demonstrate the attitudes and behaviours necessary for professional practice as a consultant clinical scientist dealing with the complexities, uncertainties and tensions of professional practice at this level.

Knowledge and understanding

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate the ability to analyse, evaluate and synthesise relevant knowledge and its application to their professional practice in relation to:

  • the practicability of, and criteria for accepting an assay
  • how to optimise reaction conditions, recognise critical parameters (robustness)
  • bias, imprecision, sensitivity, specificity
  • how to investigate for common interferences.

Technical and clinical skills

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to demonstrate a critical understanding of current relevant research, theory and knowledge and its application to the performance of the following technical procedures and laboratory skills:

  • how a new method was established and validated
  • the standard operating procedure of the method from your portfolio.

Attitudes and behaviours

This module has no attitude and behaviours information.
