About This Workshop

This training module focuses on Hematologic, Cardiovascular, and Lymphatic Systems. Many psychopharmacological agents have significant effects on these systems. The prescribing psychologist must be very familiar with the normal physiology and pathophysiology of these systems. The trainee will become familiar diagnostic testing with these systems. Hematology is the science or study of blood, blood-forming organs and blood diseases. In the medical field, hematology includes the treatment of blood disorders and malignancies, including types of hemophilia, leukemia, lymphoma and sickle-cell anemia. Interventional Cardiology is an area of medicine within the subspecialty of cardiology that uses specialized imaging and other diagnostic techniques to evaluate blood flow and pressure in the coronary arteries and chambers of the heart, as well as technical procedures and medications to treat abnormalities that impair the function of the cardiovascular system. Embedded within the discussion of cardiology is the lymphatic system, or lymphoid system. Which is an organ system (in vertebrates) that is part of the circulatory system and the immune system. Regarding the systems above, both adult and pediatric treatment populations will be lectured upon.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to:
  1. List 3 compositional features of the Blood.
  2. Recite at least 5 cellular components of the Blood.
  3. Name 2 lymphoid organs of the lymphatic system.
  4. Recall at least 3 processes of Hematopoiesis
  5. Differentiate between 2 etiologic (pathophysiologic) classifications of anemias.
  6. Distinguish and contrast between 3 morphologic classifications of anemias.
  7. Name at least 5 types of anemias and articulate each of their pathophysiologic mechanisms.
  8. Match the primary cause of at least 5 types of anemias to their corresponding name and pathophysiological mechanism.
  9. Associate at least 6 laboratory studies/tests, and their values, to correct type of anemia.
  10. List at least 5 drug classes in which anemias have resulted secondary to drug effects.
  11. Name at least 1 acquired form and 1 hereditary form of hemolytic anemias.
  12. Evaluate 2 features of acute and 2 features of chronic Leukemia.
  13. Compare and contrast 4 subtypes of Hodgkin Lymphoma.
  14. Name and articulate at least 3 types of thromboembolic diseases.
  15. Classify at least 3 distinct alternations of hematologic function in children.
  16. List 3 diseases of the veins.
  17. Name at least 7 diseases of the arties.
  18. Differentiate between 4 disorders of the heart wall, and 2 manifestations of heart disease.
  19. List at least 5 tests of cardiovascular function.
  20. Match at least 5 indicators of cardiac function with their correct/corresponding common cause of abnormality.
  21. Discuss the cardiovascular functioning in aging and older adults.
  22. Classify at least 3 distinct alternations of cardiovascular function in children.
