Clinical Laboratory Sciences Course Description


CLLS 6306

Diagnostic Algorithms


Primary Instructor:  SalazarCredit Hours:  3

The student will be given the opportunity to evaluate critical pathways of major diagnostic related groups in clinical patient management. Pathway analysis includes pathophysiology of disease processes and appropriateness/efficacy of diagnostic and therapeutic sequencing.1. Analyze existing algorithmic pathways for assigned disorders for laboratory content/accuracy in the pathophysiology of each assigned disorder.2. List appropriate therapy at each stage of a pathway for a given disorder to include pharmacological therapy.3. Describe pertinent physical examination findings at each pathway stage of an assigned disorder.4. Diagram pertinent laboratory procedures appropriate for each state of a critical pathway in a given disorder.5. Create clinical algorithmic pathways for assigned disorders.
