Delivered by Great Ormond Street Hospital Learning Academy, the aim of this 15-credit module is to provide the learner with the theory that underpins haematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT). Practitioners will learn to critically analyse the side effects of treatment to deliver appropriate care to the child or young person and their family. This module will provide the learner with the essential knowledge and skills to assess, plan, implement and evaluate the care of the patient and family undergoing HSCT.

This module can be taken as part of a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma, Postgraduate Certificate or Graduate Certificate in Paediatrics and Child Healthcare Practice. Visit our MSc Paediatrics & Child Healthcare Practice page for more details.


Active learning will allow students to learn via collaboration, cooperation, and peer-based learning. Activities may include interactive lectures, clinical skills demonstration and supervised practice, small group activities, case-based discussions, workshops, practice simulations and tutorials.

Synchronous and asynchronous learning and teaching activities are delivered via a combination of study days and digital strategies at local sites or online using the Virtual Learning Environment.


Formative assessment will take the form of peer presentations.

For the summative assessment, learners will be expected to demonstrate achievement of the intended learning outcomes via a case presentation.
