With over 20 real patient cases and outcomes, this latest title from the Clinical Cases Uncovered series is designed to help students and junior doctors learn how to recognise and understand significant diseases in haematology. Each case covers the history taking, examination, investigations and management of a particular disease, with question and answer sections to tie in the underlying basic and clinical science and help build further knowledge and understanding. At the end of each case there is a review to consolidate learning with a self-assessment section containing MCQs, EMQs and SAQs. Including colour blood films, haematology slides and patient photos throughout to reinforce learning, understanding and investigative skills, Haematology: Clinical Cases Uncovered helps prepare for life on the wards.
