About Buku Haematology

Update 2/10/19. Thanks for all of your feedback so far-it has been great. From 150 responses you have told us that the app avoided a call to haematology a fantastic 60% of the time. A further 20% of the time investigations were started before you then made a call to haematology. Thanks again.

We can now take donations through our website www.bukuhaematology.co.uk. These allow us to keep the App running as it has monthly and annual costs that we are now paying. Please take a couple of minutes to give as little as £1 as a thank you for our time contribution (>400 hours) and to keep the app running. We are not-for-profit so all money goes back into the App. Thanks Alex, Vicki and Steve

Buku haematology is a quick reference for the initial investigation and management of common haematology problems. It is for all grades of generalist and specialist doctors, specialist nurses, physician assistants and has links to key references and guidelines

The information included is concise to make it easy to use, and further reading should be undertaken to gain a full understanding of the topics covered

'Buku' is the Chichewa word for book or reference. Chichewa is spoken in Malawi where our pathology project MPathE is running

The Workups section is a more thorough approach to initial investigation and management of specific conditions in haematology

Common causes are listed by frequency from general medical literature and our clinical experience

Links at the bottom of each section offer resources for further reading including national guidelines or review articles

This app contains general information tailored for UK practice and is not advice. It should be used in conjunction with clinical judgement. The responsibility for care lies with the clinician. Use your local haematology on-call service for advice for individual cases. 

For those with an interest in haematology follow #teamhaem on twitter for clinical cases and educational resources
