Preface Summary

Key Takeaways

In this chapter you learned:

  • The David Hardwick Pathology Learning Centre (DHPLC) is a free educational centre and resource for learning – both in person and virtually – about pathology from a gross anatomy and microscopic level.
  • The DHPLC contains thousands of specimens from patients (with permission) taken during their health journey, for the purpose of health professional education.
  • Specimens are prepared both at a gross anatomical  (in plexiglass cases) and microscopic level (stained with dyes to make the cells visible) for viewing in person or virtually.
  • Changes in tissue size, shape, colour, texture, and structure can give clues to the cause of the disease.
