Health Care Scientist Reporting in Histopathology: Stage A: GI, Gynae & Skin Exam Preparation Day

This day has been designed specifically for those working towards the scientist reporting qualification and approaching or contemplating undertaking their stage A examination.
The day has been developed by Karen Ezard, Laura Saberton, Clare Raubusch who have experience in and have qualified through the part A examination.
There are Gastro-intestinal, Gynaecology and Skin modules which will run concurrently.
This is an exam preparation course. There will be advice and useful hints and tips from those that have taken the examinations along with an opportunity to discuss submitting a successful portfolio but it is not a morphology course. Participants will undertake a mock examination based around cases that might easily appear in the exam. Individual detailed feedback on performance will be provided to each candidate after the course either by e-mail or MS Teams, as per individual request.
The programme has been updated to make it suitable for those studying for the limited scope reporting options.

Rapid On-Site Evaluation of Respiratory Cytology

ROSE is an expanding field particularly in head and neck, EBUS and EUS. The benefits of ROSE are well documented and multiple guidelines for best practice promote ROSE. Appropriate planning of services and training of staff is essential for any service to run safely and effectively. This course will aim to help staff providing the service to understand its many. These training days are suitable for those preparing for the IBMS ROSE qualification but are equally suited to those who just want to learn more about the service they are helping to provide. The course covers core medical, technical, and morphological aspects of head and neck, EBUS and EUS ROSE.
We have organised these days so that participants can attend the whole course or just selected days.

Course Aims.
At the end of the course the participants should:
• Understand the sample collection and preparation methods for these samples.
• Understand pre and post analytical variables. • Assess adequacy.
• Be able to recognise basic cell types.
• Be able to distinguish between clearly benign cells and those requiring further assessment.
• Understand the ancillary techniques that can be used in each case.
• Understand the equipment requirements.
• Understand the health & safety and information governance requirements.
