Title Analytical Toxicology - Evaluation of an analytical method
Type Stage Two
Code HLS108
Requirement Compulsory

Module objective

By the end of the training period trainees will, in respect of gaining knowledge of the processes required to establish and validate a new method be able to:

  • analyse, synthesise, evaluate and apply knowledge
  • perform, adapt and master 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:

  • practicability
  • optimisation of reaction, extraction and/or chromatographic conditions
  • recognition of critical parameters (robustness)
  • bias
  • imprecision
  • sensitivity
  • selectivity
  • investigation of common interferences
  • carryover
  • range of accurate measurement
  • external validation
  • criteria for assay acceptability.

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, adaptation and mastery of the following technical procedures and laboratory skills:

  • contribute to establishing and validating a new methods
  • produce a competency assessment/training programme
  • write the standard operating procedure of the method and place a copy in your portfolio.

By the end of the training period the trainee will be able to apply knowledge of the evaluation of an analytical method to perform, adapt and master the clinical skills necessary to manage to:

  • liaise with clinical colleagues.
