An Introduction to Biomedical Science in Professional and Clinical Practice by Pitt S. J. ; Cunningham, J.Biomedical Science in Professional and Clinical Practice isessential reading for all trainee biomedical scientists looking foran introduction to the biomedical science profession whether theyare undergraduates following an accredited biomedical sciences BSc,graduate trainees or experienced staff with overseasqualifications. This book guides trainees through the subjects,which they need to understand to meet the standards required by theHealth Professions Council for state registration. These includeprofessional topics, laws and guidelines governing clinicalpathology, basic laboratory techniques and an overview of eachpathology discipline. It helps trainees at any stage of trainingand in any pathology discipline(s) to think creatively about how togather evidence of their understanding and professional competence.By referring to specialist sources of information in each area, ithelps students to explore particular topics in more depth and tokeep up to date with professional and legalchanges. It is also of value to any Training Officers whoare looking for ideas while planning a programme of training for atrainee biomedical scientist. The book includes basic principles of working in the pathologylaboratory including laws and regulations, which must be observed,such as health and safety, data protection and equal opportunitieslaws and guidelines. Practical exercises are included throughoutthe book with examples of coursework, suggestions for furtherexercises and self -assessment. Summary boxes of key facts areclearly set out in each chapter and ideas for group/tutorialdiscussions are also provided to enhance studentunderstanding.
Essential Mathematics and Statistics for Science by Currell, G. ; Dowman, A.This book is a completely revised and updated version ofthis invaluable text which allows science students to extendnecessary skills and techniques, with the topics being developedthrough examples in science which are easily understood by studentsfrom a range of disciplines. The introductory approach easesstudents into the subject, progressing to cover topics relevant tofirst and second year study and support data analysis for finalyear projects. The revision of the material in the book has been matched, onthe accompanying website, with the extensive use of video,providing worked answers to over 200 questions in the book plusadditional tutorial support. The second edition has also improvedthe learning approach for key topic areas to make it even moreaccessible and user-friendly, making it a perfect resource forstudents of all abilities. The expanding website provides a widerange of support material, providing a study environment withinwhich students can develop their independent learning skills, inaddition to providing resources that can be used by tutors forintegration into other science-based programmes.

Biomedical science practice : experimental and professional skills by Glencross, H.; Wang, Q.; Ahmed, N.; Smith, C.Biomedical scientists are the foundation of modern healthcare, from cancer screening to diagnosing HIV, from blood transfusion for surgery to food poisoning and infection control. Without biomedical scientists, the diagnosis of disease, the evaluation of the effectiveness of treatment, andresearch into the causes and cures of disease would not be possible.The Fundamentals of Biomedical Science series is written to reflect the challenges of practicing biomedical science today. It draws together essential basic science with insights into laboratory practice to show how an understanding of the biology of disease is coupled to the analytical approachesthat lead to diagnosis.Assuming only a minimum of prior knowledge, the series reviews the full range of disciplines to which a Biomedical Scientist may be exposed - from microbiology to cytopathology to transfusion science. Alongside volumes exploring specific biomedical themes and related laboratory diagnosis, anoverarching Biomedical Science Practice volume gives a grounding in the professional and experimental skills with which any Biomedical Scientist must be equipped.The series* Understands the complex roles of Biomedical Scientists in the modern practice of medicine.* Understands the development needs of employers and the Profession.* Addresses the need for understanding of a range of fundamental sciences in the context of Biomedicine.* Places the theoretical aspects of Biomedical Science in their practical context.Biomedical Science Practice presents the essential practical and professional skills that every biomedical scientist should master, making it the perfect foundation for the study of each of the key subject specialisms that maybe encountered in the biomedical lab.The book reviews a broad range of professional skills and concepts, including health and safety considerations, personal development, and communication, and also introduces the key experimental and analytical approaches that form the basis of the investigation and diagnosis of clinical conditions.Drawing on the wealth of experience of a range of biomedical science practitioners and educators, Biomedical Science Practice is the ideal companion throughout your biomedical science education and training.Online Resource CentreThe Online Resource Centre to accompany Biomedical Science Practice features:For registered adopters of the book:* Figures from the book, available to downloadFor students:* An interactive Digital Microscope, encouraging the exploration of tissue samples* Self-assessment modules to help you to check and reinforce understanding of the basic science introduced in each volume* Video podcasts including interviews with practicing biomedical scientists, and 'in the lab' footage showing biomedical science in practice
