LMED29011 - Transfusion and Transplantation Medicine 2

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit enables you to develop an advanced knowledge and understanding of the principles of transfusion and transplantation medicine, building on the knowledge and understanding of the principles gained in earlier units. You will enhance your knowledge on topics such as safe blood storage and handling, blood and tissue typing and the detection and identification of antibodies significant in transfusion and solid tissue transplantation. You will develop the critical skills necessary to enable you to provide advice on the provision of safe tissue transplantations and blood products and components for transfusion in both routine and emergency situations including product selection and patient management.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Postgraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 20%
2. Case Study 30%
3. Online Test 50%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
