Extra notes:
· Visuals i.e. figures, pictures, graphs and tables used to help explain concepts and summarize information in e-portfolio should be numbered and fully labelled
· Written work i.e. reflective report and answers to questions - must be referenced (in the text and a list) using the Harvard system.
· All work included in the e-portfolio should be written in Arial font size 12 (or larger if you need to), with a minimum of 1.5 line spacing.
    Harvard Referencing should be used when writing short assays; reflective reports etc see your Li
ary Subject Guide for guides and tips on referencing.
    Make sure you understand the University Regulations on expected academic practice and academic misconduct.
Note in particular:
· Your work must be your own. Markers will be attentive to both the plausibility of the sources provided as well as the consistency and approach to the writing of the work. Simply, if you do the research and reading, and then write it up on your own, giving the reference to sources, you will approach the work in the appropriate way and will cause not give markers reason to question the authenticity of the work.
· All quotations must be credited and properly referenced. Paraphrasing is still regarded as plagiarism if you fail to acknowledge the source for the ideas being expressed.
TURNITIN: When you upload your work to the Moodle site it will be checked by anti-plagiarism software. 15% Turnitin score is the maximum allowed.

Appendix 1: Communication, leadership, teamwork, emotional intelligence, organisational skills, time management, adaptability, and problem-solving are some of the professional skill activities that may be learned in professional skill sessions. When working as a quality control manager, having abilities such as these helps with the management of a wide variety of scenarios.
Appendix 2: Can be completed by student only
Appendix 3: Quality control of the cases
1. External quality Assessment [EQA] results with and annotation of results explaining the meaning of each EQA report element:
UK NEQAS for Bullos Dermatosis:
The UK National External Quality Assessment Societies (NEQAS) are the members of a charitable consortium. In this report they performed the quality assessment for Bullos Dermatosis. Chronic bullous dermatosis of childhood, also known as CBDC, is an immunobullous condition that affects the subepidermal layer of the skin. It is distinguished from other subepidermal immunobullous disorders by its distinctive clinical manifestations as well as the presence of linear IgA accumulation at the basement mem
ane zone on direct immunofluorescent inspection of perilesional skin. The main cause of linear IgA bullous dermatosis (LABD), also called bullous dermatosis associated with IgA, is IgA anti-basement mem
ane zone antibodies that target the 97 kDa part of BPAG2 (bullous pemphigoid antigen 2, also called BP180) in the lamina lucida. The BPAG2 molecule contains a well-known NC16A domain, which is where the 97 kDa component may be found. Bullae are elevated, fluid-filled lesions 10 mm in diameter. Epidermis biopsies and immunofluorescence examination of the epidermis and serum are used for diagnosis. Initially, local and systemic forms of corticosteroids are used. A number of immunosuppressants have the potential to be used for long-term maintenance therapy, which is necessary for the majority of patients. The most prevalent treatment is the pill form of prednisone. However, prolonged exposure can increase the risk of osteoporosis, diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, and infection. In the given report 148 participants out of the 177 selected took part with a response rate of 83%. Among these participants, the serum of one of the donor patients was found to be positive for Pemphigus vulgaris when assessed by autoantibodies (abs) against desmoglein and BP180 respectively by indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) test. Pemphigus vulgaris [PV] constitutes a blistering condition that, in around eighty percent of patients, presents itself on the mucosa of the mouth. These intraoral blisters rupture frequently, leaving behind excruciating erosions. Following the presentation of the initial oral blisters, cutaneous lesions may develop in approximately 75% of patients diagnosed with PV. autoantibodies (abs) against desmoglein 1, 3 (DSG1/3) and BP180/BP230, respectively. A novel mosaic to indirect immunofluorescence (IIF) In this the analytes detected in the serum was Desmosome or desmoglein and Basement mem
ane BP-180. A positive result indicates the presence of antibodies to recombinant DSG1 and DSG3 and does not specifically identify a certain type of pemphigus.  The response of the test result was positive for Desmosome and negative for BP-180 that confirms the presence of Pemphigus vulgaris in the patient’s sample.
2. Analysis of IQC charts:
During routine usage of an analytical method over extended periods of time, internal quality control (IQC) guarantees that the factors driving the level of uncertainty do not vary. This makes the results of the analysis more reliable. In order to conduct an analysis of a control chart, we verified that the oscillations occu
ed in a random manner around the goal value: the higher or lower trend, the decreasing or increasing trend, one point that was within the warning limits and the limits of control, and the last point that was outside a control limit. In the given IQC charts the detected e
ors at different time intervals are: too na
ow control limit for level 1; too wide control limit at level two; over control at level 3; i
egular increasing trend at level 4 and overcrowding at level 5.
Appendix 4. Interpretation and annotation of patient results
This is a report of the kidney function tests that were performed on the patient to determine how well their kidneys are functioning. According to the study, the patient's serum was analysed for the levels of several different components, including salt, potassium, chloride, urea, and creatinine, all of which are critical indicators of how well the kidneys are performing. The patient whose blood was drawn has normal sodium levels but elevated potassium and chloride levels, which point to hyperkalaemia, or a state in which there is too much potassium for the kidneys to eliminate, as well as disorders such as kidney disease. A blood test called a serum creatinine test can be used to assess the quantity of creatinine that is floating around in the circulatory system. The level of creatinine in the serum will increase when the kidneys are not performing as well as...
