Clinical Learning in a Virtual World

by Dorelle Engel, product line specialist, On-Demand Products

Take it with you! APHL’s Department of Continuing Education and Training has released an outstanding new online course in CD format entitled Red Blood Cell Morphology. The course can be used as a review for hematology technicians, clinical lab scientists, technologists and pathologists. To those new to the field, this course is an invaluable training tool in identification of normal and abnormal red blood cell morphology. In addition to course content, scenarios were developed to provide real-life simulations in a hematology lab setting. These 10 different scenarios include both case studies and bench work situations. Patient history and lab results are presented and the viewer can examine virtual blood smears for each activity. Several practice questions are provided for each scenario, challenging the learner’s comprehension. APHL CD format allows for training at the convenience of the laboratorian. This basic course offers 2 contact hours through the ASCLS P.A.C.E.® Continuing Education Program.

In addition to our On-Demand line up of programs, APHL strives to provide and encourage high quality Continuing Education and Training Programs using a variety of different presentation formats, including seminars, hands-on laboratory workshops, teleconferences and webconferences.
