Learning outcomes


The student would acquire general knowledge about the organization of the National Health Service and the Medical Laboratory Service, the pathophysiological principles and laboratory tests for diagnosis, monitoring and therapeutic of the main human pathologies, the aspects of pre-analytical, analytical and post-analytical laboratory, with specific reference to the principles, analytical techniques and instrumentation used in the biomedical laboratory.

CLINICAL BIOCHEMICAL: 1. Organization of the National Health Service and of the Laboratory Analysis 2. Knowledge of the pathophysiological principles and laboratory tests for the main pathologies, with particular reference to the cardiovascular, thromboembolic and neoplastic ones 3. Quality aspects analytical, analytical and post-analytical laboratory

METHODS AND TECHNIQUES OF CLINICAL BIOCHEMISTRY:knowledge about the chemical-physical principles underlying the main analytical techniques used in the Biomedical Laboratory, with particular reference to the relative instrumentation and the fundamental technical characteristics.

AUTOMATIC INSTRUMENTAL TECHNOLOGY MODULE: Technological evolution from manual tests to automatic integrated systems. During the course the main methodological principles of the automated instruments in use in the clinical biochemistry laboratories will be described, with attention to the evaluation of the process indicators for a correct management of the analytical objectives.

Syllabus

LABORATORY MEDICINE
At the end of the course the student will be able to apply choices and paths based on probabilistic criteria, usefulness and risk-benefit to the diagnostic process, being able to critically evaluate the Evidence-Based Medicine criteria (EBM). He/She will learn the value of Clinical Biochemistry on the diagnostic and therapeutic clinical decision making. The student will be finally able to guide the appropriate choice of laboratory tests and to correctly interpret their results, taking into account both interfering variables and confounding factors
