The Hematology/Oncology/Immunology course combines discussion of some of the most common blood disorders, cancers, and autoimmune diseases. These three systems are intertwined because they’re all related to blood cells and immune responses. Our bodies are amazing in how these tiny specialized cells have such powerful effects in our bodies. When any of it isn’t working, it can cause a lot of issues. We’re going to break it down for you and help you see how it all works together to keep us healthy. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to…
- Discuss the pathophysiology and nursing priorities for common hematologic diseases.
- Explain the different types of anemia and how their nursing priorities differ from each other.
- Discuss the pathophysiology and nursing priorities for common oncologic diseases.
- Discuss the pathophysiology and nursing priorities for common immunological diseases.
Cornell Note-Taking System Instructions:
- Record: During the lecture, use the note-taking column to record the lecture using telegraphic sentences.
- Questions: As soon after class as possible, formulate questions based onthe notes in the right-hand column. Writing questions helps to clarifymeanings, reveal relationships, establish continuity, and strengthenmemory. Also, the writing of questions sets up a perfect stage for exam-studying later.
- Recite: Cover the note-taking column with a sheet of paper. Then, looking at the questions or cue-words in the question and cue column only, say aloud, in your own words, the answers to the questions, facts, or ideas indicated by the cue-words.
- Reflect: Reflect on the material by asking yourself questions, for example: “What’s the significance of these facts? What principle are they based on? How can I apply them? How do they fit in with what I already know? What’s beyond them?
- Review: Spend at least ten minutes every week reviewing all your previous notes. If you do, you’ll retain a great deal for current use, as well as, for the exam.
