Abstract
Introduction: The full blood count (FBC) is a routine assay that provides
information on all the blood cells, such as erythrocytes, leucocytes, and
platelets. The FBC results are usually accompanied by histograms which are
applicable for making a preliminary prediction of many disease states. In
this study, we assessed the utility of FBC histograms among health workers
and their knowledge of its interpretation.
Methods: An online quantitative cross-sectional survey designed using
Google forms were conducted from April to May 2022. The convenience
sampling method was used to invite health workers to the survey that
demanded that they answer questions that assessed their levels of utility
and knowledge on the interpretation of FBC histograms. Data collected was
analysed using the IBM SPSS version 26 using descriptive and inferential
statistics.
