  JCHMT curricula: Haematology   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Haematology in the UK encompasses both clinical and laboratory aspects of the speciality.
Neonatal haematology, normal and abnormal, especially neonatal anaemias, haematological aspects of sepsis, coagulation disorders including haemorrhagic disease of the newborn and its prevention and the haematology of prematurity.
There are further skills in the practice of haematology which will need to be acquired during this phase but it is also evident that opportunity for continuing medical education (CME) must exist to continue training beyond the CCT and prescriptive training cannot cover all aspects of haematology.

 Veterinary Haematology - Feline, Canine, Exotic, Animal, Equine, CTDS Veterinary Hematology
Haematology is the study of blood disease and diseases of the blood forming organs.
For routine haematology we recommend the submission of whole blood taken into EDTA anticoagulant (or Lithium heparin for exotics or small samples that also require biochemistry) and a freshly prepared blood film made at the time of phlebotomy.
It is especially important for haematology that the blood sample is not clotted -the presence of fibrin clots in haematology samples give results that are erroneous.
