Sessions at a glance:

 


Day 1: Monday, 30 Jan

Session 1: Application of Advanced Metachromatic Nucleic Acid Staining Technique to Automated Blood Cell Analyser

Time: 10:00am - 11:30am

Capacity: 20 delegates

Target Audience:

  • Medical Scientists
  • Laboratory scientist
  • Haematologist
  • Quality Control Specialist
  • GPs
  • Triage Nurses

Overview:
In this training, attendees will gain a complete understanding of advanced metachromatic nucleic acid staining techniques to automated blood cell analyser as related to certain eitologies. A method for enumerating and distinguishing between blood cell populations in a biological sample includes the steps of contacting a biological sample with a cell membrane-permeant, red-excited, nucleic acid binding dye, without significantly disrupting the integrity of the cell.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about the standardisation of abnormal red cell morphology in peripheral blood smear
  • Understand the meaning of the counter based red cell indices
  • Distinguish the grading abnormal red cell morphology in peripheral blood smear

Trainer:
Prof. Hiroshi Kondo, Professor of Clinical Laboratory Science, Secondary Clinical Pathology Professional Engineer in Haematology, Kansai University of Health Sciences, Japan

 


Session 2: Global Trend of Standardisation and Quality Control in Haematology

Time: 11:30am - 1:00pm

Capacity: 20 delegates

Target Audience:

  • Medical Scientists
  • Laboratory scientist
  • Haematologist
  • Quality Control Specialist
  • GPs
  • Triage Nurses

Overview:
The training will cover important aspects of quality in haematology such as the correct calibration of automated instruments, monitoring of accuracy and precision of instruments and procedures, and verifying the reliability of test results. It will also highlight the benefits of external QC and correlation of results of related parameters to ensure reliability of results obtained from automated haematology instruments.

Learning objectives:

  • Take home a good understanding of the global trend of standardisation
  • Discover the importance of quality control in haematology parameters
  • Gain practical skills of calibrating automated technology

Trainer:
Prof. Hiroshi Kondo, Professor of Clinical Laboratory Science, Secondary Clinical Pathology Professional Engineer in Haematology, Kansai University of Health Sciences, Japan


Session 3: Performance Evaluation of Haematology Analyzer

Time:Time: 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Capacity: 20 delegates

Target Audience:

  • Medical Scientists
  • Laboratory scientist
  • Haematologist
  • Quality Control Specialist
  • GPs
  • Triage Nurses

Overview:
In this training session Prof Kondo will review literature on the value of reproducibility of results in haematology. Discussions on the carry over correlation with eye count will also be reviewed and specific focus will be paid to PLT correlation in Neonatal diagnosis.

Learning objectives:

  • Learn about the importance of reproducibility in hematology
  • Practice the carry over correlation with eye count correlation
  • Understand the carry over in hematology

Trainer:
Prof. Hiroshi Kondo, Professor of Clinical Laboratory Science, Secondary Clinical Pathology Professional Engineer in Haematology, Kansai University of Health Sciences, Japan


Day 2: Tuesday, 31 Jan

Session 1: Neurology – Benefits of Intra-Operative Monitoring (IOM)

Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm

Capacity: 20 delegates

Target Audience:

  • Neurologists
  • Neurophysiologists
  • Neurosurgeons

Overview:
Training in new application technology for better clinical neurophysiology monitoring will be delivered in this session. Evaluation of the current technology on the market and a review of the IOM system will be covered. Application in clinical settings and technical use for optimum examination results will be discussed. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn the techniques on the IOM allowing for better intraoperative monitoring and recording for better patient outcomes.

Learning objectives:

  • Review and training of the IOM functions and applications to:
  • Reduce surgical complications and errors
  • Provide functional application training for symptom analysis
  • Deliver effective guidance during surgery for better patient outcomes

Trainer:
Dr. Muhammad Tariq Imtiaz MD., DABNM., FASNM., Consultant Physician, King Fahad Medical City, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia (Only Accredited IOM hospital outside USA)


Session 2: Neonatal Respiratory Care – Piston High Frequency Oscillation Ventilation (PHFO) on Neonates

Time: 02:00pm - 04:00pm

Capacity: 20 delegates

Target Audience:

  • Medical Scientists
  • Neonatal Intensivist
  • Pulmonologist
  • Paediatric Intensivist
  • Respiratory Therapists
  • NICU Doctors
  • NICU Nurses

Overview:
During this training, neonatal and paediatric specialists can gain insight into the latest technology available for the treatment of premature and newborn infants. Using high frequency oscillation ventilators (HFOV) for the effective treatment of premature and newborn infants who require gentle ventilation. A unique vibration, rather than pressure, is used to deliver oxygen directly into the lungs of neonates whilst allowing physicians complete control by fine tune adjustment of the stroke volume from 0.2ml to 160ml. Attendees can expect to gain insight into the technology, it’s uses and application training.

Learning objectives:

  • Complete understanding of the PHFO innovation
  • Lung protective measures for neonates
  • Wider application of the technology for neonatal purposes

Trainer:
Mohammed Ahmed Hazazi, RRT, Ministry Of Health, King Abdallah Medical City, Makkah, Saudi Arabia
