BBTS Conference 2016

Transfusing Wisely

This category is all about the laboratory / clinical interface in transfusion: it is about patient blood management, optimising the care of patients who might need transfusion. Patient Blood Management puts the patient at the heart of decisions made about blood transfusion to ensure they receive the best treatment including alternatives to transfusion and avoidable, inappropriate use of blood and blood components is reduced.
