Coagulation



The Primary ( ) and Final () FRCA examinations require an extensive knowledge of coagulation. We have therefore written a new educational resource section on the subject of coagulation, tests of coagulation, haemophilia and novel therapies in this area. The tutorials have been tailored to the FRCA syllabus and we have also added some past questions relevant to these topics.

Read other sections by using the navigation bar on the right side of every page.
