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.
