This CPD seminar will focus on diagnosing and treating some of the most common pathologies encountered in clinical practice, with the help of standard blood test results. Common pathologies in the areas of Haematology, Metabolism, Immunology, and Endocrinology will be discussed with reference to clinical evaluation, to form an integrated and holistic approach to diagnosis and treatment. Detailed lecture notes will be provided to refer to during the seminar and to use for reference afterwards.
On successful completion of this seminar, practitioners will be able to:
• Critically analyze and interpret a variety of clinical laboratory test results for their patients.
• Critically evaluate abnormal, borderline and inconsistent test results in order to identify abnormalities.
• Combine the results from orthodox laboratory tests and clinical evaluation to form an integrated and holistic approach to analysis and interpretation.
• Integrate laboratory test results with history taking and clinical examinations, in order to formulate a diagnosis and determine the most appropriate approach to treatment.
