Title Haemostatic pathways and principles of coagulation
Type Stage Two
Code HLS153
Requirement Compulsory

Module objective

By the end of the training period trainees will, in respect of haemostatic pathways and principles of coagulation, 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:

  • haemostatic pathways, cell-based model of blood coagulation
  • platelet structure and function, metabolic pathways
  • fibrinolytic pathways
  • natural coagulation inhibitors and anticoagulant pathways
  • haemostasis in children and the newborn
  • pregnancy and haemostasis.

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:

  • to understand the biochemical and physiological aspects of haemostatic mechanisms.

Attitudes and behaviours
