Acute leukaemia can progress rapidly, usually requiring immediate treatment. The two most common types of acute leukaemia are acute myeloid leukaemia (AML), most often diagnosed in older people, and acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) most often diagnosed in younger people.
Both chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) and chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) are often picked up incidentally in primary care. This is because presentation of these diseases can be gradual, with most patients with CLL diagnosed after undergoing a routine blood test.
Our courses will support you to:
Increase your awareness of the symptoms and diagnosis of acute and chronic leukaemia
Understand the different presentations, referral and management of acute and chronic leukaemia
