Understanding disorders of hematology first requires knowledge of anatomy and normal function. Onwards you’ll need to study the many ways the cells can be affected by disease. Finally, you’ll learn how to integrate this knowledge of (ab)normal function and disease into a clinical approach of patients with clinical problems.
Part 2 : Diseases of hematology
Diseases are described through a standard list of properties.
General, Epidemiology, Symptoms, Risk factors, Cause, Diagnostics, Treatment, Prognosis, Caution.
Part 3 : Approach to the patient with complaints
Knowing a list of diseases does not fully prepare you for clinical practice, as patients usually present with symptoms or complaints, not diagnoses. Use your knowledge of anatomy, physiology and disease to determine your clinical strategy.
